Lungarotti Rubesco Riserva Vigna Monticchio 2009
Cantine Lungarotti, founded by Giorgio Lungarotti, is a benchmark in Umbria. This reserve cuvée, a blend of Sangiovese (70%) and Canaiolo (30%), has such pronounced wood notes it makes you think of dark rum. A potent affair, and rustic in the best sense of that term, the palate is tannic and communicates animal, spice and roasted flavours. Definitely a wine worth revisiting in a few years!
