Umbria At a Glance

Region Name Umbria

Bordering on Tuscany and right above Rome is the lesser-known and lesser-traveled region of Umbria.  Without access to either the sea or international borders, it is affectionately referred to as the “green heart of Italy.”

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2016 James Suckling I like the bright pomegranate, cranberry and fresh-herb character on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a clean, flavorful finish. Surprising freshness considering its age. All in place and nice to drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media The 2015 Colpetrone Rosso di Montefalco is much more refined and perfumed than I would have expected from this warm vintage, showing peppery herbs and dusty florals, plus crushed red wild berries and a hint of dusty earth. On the palate, silky textures envelop all that they touch in ripe cherry fruit and sweet spices, made juicy through vibrant acidity and minerals, as round tannins slowly settle in. The finish is medium in length, leaning more toward the tart black fruit spectrum, yet with a salty twang that makes the mouth water. The 2017 is really quite stunning today. A blend of 70% Sangiovese with equal parts Merlot and Sagrantino. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2015 James Suckling The candied strawberries and caramelized orange peel draw you in on the nose; then you notice hints of ash and red licorice. The full-bodied palate has quite a serious tannin backbone, and vibrant red fruit lies beneath waiting to be drawn out tightly by a fine acid edge. The finish is quite fruit-forward. Drink now.

  • Score: 90 Vintage 2014 Vinous Media The 2014 Colpetrone Rosso di Montefalco is wonderfully fresh yet also quite spicy, leading off with dusty flowers and hints of peppery herbs, as notes of bright cherry, hints of leather and cedar develop in the glass. On the palate, soft textures flood the senses with creamy, ripe berries, subtle spice and inner florals. The finish is medium in length and fresh, leaning toward the savory spectrum, resonating on pretty red fruits and a hint of fine tannin. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2014 Wine Enthusiast Ripe red berry, culinary spice and leather aromas lead the nose while a whiff of espresso stays in the background. The light-bodied, supple palate evokes ripe black cherry, star anise and coffee bean alongside pliant tannins. Drink soon. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
