Umbria

Umbria

Umbria is home to Italy's deepest, darkest wine, from the Sagrantino grape.  Despite its fame, the area planted is small, and only a handful of producers control much of the production.  While single varietal versions are relatively rare, it is often blended with Sangiovese to yield a super-Tuscan like wine without using French grapes like Cabernet.  Umbria is also home to the historic white wine region of Orvieto, which spills over into nearby Lazio.
