Lungarotti Società Agricola 2010 Vigna Monticchio Rubesco Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG
Founded in the early 1960s by Giorgio Lungarotti, this winery has elevated the quality standards for its region, Torgiano, as well as Umbria as a whole. The Monticchio Rubesco Torgiano Rosso Riserva is a single vineyard expression of Sangiovese and Canaiolo aged for 12 months in barrel and several years in bottle prior to release. Made in a complex, full-bodied and age worthy style, this is marked by elegant aromas suggesting cooked red fruit, floral and spice (cinnamon and pepper) notes that establish its power and class. The palate is ripe and round with nice structure and a core of ripe fruit that’s enhanced by tobacco and spice notes, with gripping tannins on the lingering finish. Seriously impressive.
