Other Red Blends from Italy

artichokes, liquorice root, and leather with an interesting mineral note

Torami is a newest addition to the Lamborghini
estate. Its name comes from a nearby resort
and it is made from Montepulciano grapes. The
vineyards were planted in the early 1970s and
the first vintage was 2003. The fruit undergoes
maceration for 22 days and is followed by the
primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is allowed to rest for 10 months in new
French barriques, is then bottled and kept in the
cellar for another 6 months.
The vineyard. is situated in Umbria, on lake Trasimeno. Today this region is very well considered in the international market for its viticulture vacation.
Aniong the traditional grapes of the area, Sangiovese, Gamay and Ciliegiolo. he decided to specialize in planting international grapes like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon as a considerable choice for the future. Front then many changes and investments have been made in order to develop the vineyards.
With the building of the wine cellars in 1975 started the commercializing of the wines. Today the specialized development of the lands with its vineyards extends for over 32 hectares which 7 have been newly sown.
The harvest 1997 was the beginning of a dramatic improvement of "La Fiorita " both regarding the management of the vineyards and the development of the wines. With the collaboration with Dr Riccardo Cotarella and the drastic reduction of the grapes we are now achieving our quality ambition.
With our new interest in wine making we have obtained 2 new red wines: Trescone and Campoleone

About Other Italian
Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Umbria
Home of the fashion capital of Milan, Lombardy is not quite Italy's capital of wine. It is, however, home to a few wines worth noting. Most vineyards are far north, far south or far east. First, in the south, the sparkling wine Franciacorta – this sparkling wine is made in the methode champagnoise and the better wineries produce wine that can hold it's own in a quality bubbly line up. Lugana, a pleasant, white wine made from Trebbiano, comes from Lombardy as well. Lean reds from the Nebbiolo grape are made further up in the Valtelliana region, near the Alps.
The region of Emilia-Romagna is better known for its food rather than wine. Most of the wine coming from this region is the red, slightly-fizzy Lambrusco. It's high in acid and best drunk young. The white coming out of the region is mostly Albana di Romagna. Made from the albana grape, it's typically dry and pleasant, although not found often.
Talk about being in the center of things… the land-locked region of Umbria is smack dab in the middle of the country. The most familiar white wine of the region is Orvieto, named for the medieval Etruscan town. It's a Trebbiano-based wine with good fruit flavors and high acid. Originally a sweet wine, most Orvietos are now dry. Red wine from Umbria includes Torgiano and Montefalco - Torgiano made from the grapes of Chianti, while Montefalco uses the native sagrantino grape, making big and bold reds.
A little ditty about Italy...
This country has about as many wines as its had governments. With 20 different regions, hundreds of DOCs and even more indigenous varieties, the amount of wine made in Italy is mind-boggling. Most of the juice, however, remains in the country for thirsty Italians. Wine is food in Italy and its rare that a meal is consumed without a glass
of vino. That said, it's not common to find many folks drinking wine without food either. In turn, it's a match, and a mighty good one at that. In fact, it's safe to say that Italian wine is a foodie wine – one that goes on the table for a myraid of meals.
For regions, the most popular are Tuscany (home of Chianti), Piedmont and the Tre-Venezie, which includes Veneto, Trentino Alto-Adige and Friuli. Other communes of note are in Southern Italy, and a few good wines are made elsewhere in the country. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily are members of the Italian winemaking community as well.

Chewy indeed! This is so full and fleshy, I absolutely loved it! A wine club selection, we opened this last night, and I was excited as soon as the cork came out of the bottle - a great aroma. Everything in the description is true, taste-wise...and then some. This has a complex and well balanced taste and a finish that will just leave you happy and wanting more. Definitely something I will buy again.
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
