Torgiano Rosso Riserva “Rubesco Vigna Monticchio” DOCG , Lungarotti , 2009

Lungarotti


We tasted this on our visit to one of Lungarotti's estates, which is sat at the foot of the beautiful Montefalco village on our visit to Umbria for our Honeymoon. This is a stunning wine, it was served to us last and really stood out, we love our standard Rubesco, but if you know your Rubesco's or looking for something a little special, we highly recommend this for you. Not something we drink often, but we love every drop when we do.
