Rubesco Rosso Torgiano DOC, Lungarotti 2018

Lungarotti


I experienced my first bottle of wine from Lungarotti while staying on the island of Capri. It was a 2007 Sagratino and I enjoyed it with a burger, covered in Mozzarella. Every time we visit, my order is now the same Bottle of 2007 and a burger. I try to not share either. 

As a surprise, my wife booked a wine tour on our honeymoon around Lungarotti and we got to enjoy a number of their collection, a 2010 Rubesco Rosso being one. The 2018 is still a beautiful wine, we enjoy.

A DOC wine since 1968, it is Lungarotti’s most popular wine worldwide. Rubesco is a proprietary brand, derived 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.
