Umbria

Umbria is a central Italian region and it is also the only region to have no coastline, it is surrounded by Tuscany, Marche and Lazio, and wine production is not massive, Umbria is the fourth smallest wine producing Italian region, however it produces some of the most known Italian wines, from the Orvieto on all its versions, named after the Umbrian town of Orvieto, the Grechetto or the red wine Sagrantino di Montefalco, a DOCG wine made with Sagrantino grapes.

Umbria is mainly known for its white wines made with Trebbiano and Grechetto but it is also home to two DOCG red wine appellations, the Sagrantino di Montefalco made with the native grape Sagrantino, able to produce complex and powerful wines and the Torgiano Rosso Riserva made predominantly with Sangiovese, a grape that is growing in popularity and is the region’s most planted grape.

Umbria’s wines are little known outside the region and the country, however, in the latest years, with wine drinkers always looking for new wines and wine regions, have grown in popularity. Together with Sagrantino and Sangiovese that can also be considered native to Umbria, more and more wineries have planted international grapes, from Cabernet Sauvignon to Merlot and Pinot Noir amongst the reds, to Chardonnay and Sauvignon amongst the whites.
