7593JaneGarveyAtlantaGeorgiaUSAIt’s such a delight to watch the aromas emerge and develop in the glass with this wine, which comes from Umbria, a region in central Italy with its capital at Perugia. This full-bodied dry red wine shows an intense, deep, dark color, and presents aromas of spice and
fresh dark fruits, especially plum with a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, the dark fruits are framed by serious tannins, assuring the wine’s usefulness with rich foods. Fruit, acidity and tannins are beautifully balanced, and the long finish is clean and tannic. Grape
type: Sagranto, which is a very tannic grape native to Umbria, and a dab of Merlot. For that reason, the wine is I.G.T. (D.O.C.G. designation would require 100% Sagranto, which used to be made as a dessert wine.) A handsome wine. Serve around 65ºF/17ºC in tulip-shaped glasses. Begin in stainless steel, the wine then is aged in French oak. A good candidate for cellaring 5-8 years from vintage. Foods: smooth foie gras mousse or pâté rather than coarser terrines; gamier meats such as lamb or duck breast seasoned with five spice powder and sauced with dried cherries or other dried dark fruits and caramelized onions; Cornish hen grilled and brushed with dark fruit glaze; aged firm cheeses; dark chocolate (hubba!)
