Description

An elegant wine with solid structure, deep ruby colour and complex aroma that recalls marasca cherries and blackberries, followed by notes of violet, light mentholated hints and a spicy finish. A wine of great concentration, fruity and slightly balsamic, it has soft and velvety tannins with a long, lingering finish.

Grape varietals
Sangiovese from the Monticchio vineyard; pruning system: double spurred cordon, harvested in October
Vinification
Fermented in stainless steel with skin maceration, barrique aged for one year and bottle aged for several years. Thanks to its complexity, it is suited for an average aging of 30-35 years
Food pairings
dishes of refined international cuisine, fillet with pepper and Japanese mustard, squab with black truffles, roast beef with wasabi, Peking duck, guinea hen, aged cheeses. Serve at 16-18°C (61-64°F) in large stemglass.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Please Drink Responsibly.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Flavor

    A wine of great concentration, fruity and slightly balsamic, it has soft and velvety tannins with a long, lingering finish.

“Like the people of Umbria: initially reserved, but then truly generous with its perfect balance between power and elegance." - Chiara Lungarotti


Origins

A DOCG wine since 1990 with retroactive recognition back to the 1983 vintage. Considered one of Italy’s best red wines, it is a profound expression of Umbria, of its hillsides and its people, with a perfect harmony between power and elegance. Rubesco is a proprietary trademark deriving from the Latin verb rubescere, to blush: hence, a joyous meaning. On the label, a bas-relief depicting the harvest, detail from the Fontana Maggiore of Perugia, one of Italy’s most beautiful 13th-century fountains.
