Winemaker's Notes:

The color is straw yellow with slight greenish reflections. The bouquet is extremely elegant, with floral and citrus notes, it is very intense and fragrant on the finish. The palate is dry, with solid structure, pleasantly fruity and with very fresh acidity; long finish with slight bitterness; intense and prolonged aromatic persistence.

About Lungarotti:

Created by Dott. Giorgio Lungarotti in 1962, the Lungarotti Winery has built its reputation on a legacy of firsts in Italian winemaking. Lungarotti’s Torre di Giano and Rubesco wines were the first wines from Umbria, and some of the first in Italy to, in 1968, be granted DOC status. In 1990, the single-vineyard Rubesco Riserva “Vigna Monticchio” achieved DOCG status. In the 1970s, Teresa Severini Lungarotti became Italy’s first women enologist, and, having joined her father upon graduation from the University of Perugia, is the chief enologist at the Lungarotti Winery. In 1998, Giorgio’s youngest daughter, Chiara, graduated with her degree in agriculture and has taken charge of the viticulture program at Lungarotti. The Lungarotti sisters are a dedicated winemaking team, who continue their father’s proud legacy, leading the Umbrian wine industry in quality and innovation.
