Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
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%.

Winemaker's Notes

The color is a lovely and brilliant ruby red with violet hues. The bouquet: intense and elegant with sweet spices, cinnamon and pepper; pleasant red fruit and black cherry on the finish with hints of sweet tobacco. On the palate is solid structure, harmonious and supported by a fresh acidity; persistent flavor of red fruits with long, austere tannins on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Rubesco (Sangiovese, Canaiolo) is a lovely offering laced with juicy red berries, flowers and spices. The soft, caressing fruit leads to an elegant, classy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.

This year I tasted the entire range from Lungarotti. The estate continues to excel with the wines that built the estate’s name. The rationale for producing Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay in Umbria escapes me, while the wines from Montefalco remain works in progress. "
88 Points

"This is a mostly Sangiovese-based wine that shows special territorial characteristics of Umbria in central Italy. The fruit is lively, bright and fresh tones of wild berries make this a versatile and food-friendly choice."

In 1990, the single-vineyard Rubesco Riserva Vigna Monticchio achieved DOCG status. In the 1970s,...
