I.G.T. Umbria

Umbria Rosso is made from the Sangiovese grapes so typical of the hills in the region surrounding Todi. Once the grapes are brought into the winery they are pressed and separated through a crusher-stemmer and successfully loaded in fermentation tanks. The must is then left in contact with the peels for 8 to 12 days. After the gross dregs are removed from the wine, it is placed in steel tanks to age for around four months. Following another three month refinement in bottles, the wine is ready to be enjoyed. Sangiovese IGT is a soft, well-rounded and slightly fruity red. It is ideal with appetisers, cold-cuts, and moderately mature cheeses. Serve at 14-16 °C.
