Umbria, Italian wine excellence. Word of Forbes, the prestigious journal of the American economy and finance which, in a long article by Per and Britt Karlsson, sings the praises of the Sagrantino di Montefalco, whose grapes are grown for centuries on the slopes of the Umbrian hills.

 "Umbria - says Forbes - is a wonderful Italian region. So many comments about it, as indeed for most of the beautiful Italy. And that's a fact. If would say, however, that Umbria has also stunning wine? Well, many other Italian regions also have it. But unquestionably Umbria has some really rare wines. Umbria is a small region, but with different types of wine. In the south, the vineyards are scattered around the pretty town of Montefalco. Sangiovese here, as in the neighboring Tuscany, is grown and used to produce the Montefalco Rosso. What ensues, are very pleasant and convenient wines. Excellent table wines, light and elegant in style."

"However - continues Forbes - the big surprise comes from Sagrantino. This wine is used only in small part at Montefalco. But its vines are breathtaking. Some compare it to Barolo from Piedmont, others to the great grape of southern Italy, Aglianico . 'Sagrantino must be tamed', says a farmer, which means that this product has to be aged a lot. And after enjoying a variety of wines from the 2011 vintage recently put up for sale, I absolutely agree. Even if of course everything depends on the manufacturer.
