Umbrian Wines

Umbria’s unique landscape has made it an ideal vine-growing region since antiquity. Until recently the region has remained fairly isolated, thereby ensuring both that its centuries of tradition in this field remained intact and that the wine industry developed late compared with neighbouring Tuscany or Lazio.

Umbrian wines have now reached excellent standards in terms of quality, along with an international reputation that enables them to compete with more established labels from across Italy. The jealously guarded secrets of the region’s vine-growing traditions, passed down through the centuries, have ensured that a startling variety of uncontaminated autochthonous Umbrian varieties of grape – both red and white – have survived. Some prime examples are Ciliegiolo, Sangiovese and Sagrantino, as well as Drupeggio, Grechetto, Malvasia, Procanico, Trebbiano and Verdello.

The careful combination of these local vines with other varieties has produced quality results, of which perhaps the best known is the DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) denomination Sagrantino di Montefalco, produced also in passito form, and the Torgiano Rosso Riserva.

Among Umbria’s DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) denomination wines are Assisi, Colli Altotiberini, Colli Amerini, Colli del Trasimeno, Colli Martani, Colli Perugini, Lago di Corbara, Montefalco, Orvieto, Rosso Orvietano and Torgiano.

The region’s IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) denomination wines are Allerona, Bettona, Cannara, Narni, Spello and Umbria.
