Flavors of Umbria
Umbria has a centuries long tradition of cultivating grapes and producing wine. Tthe Etruscan-Roman wine trail wends its way through most of the region, and many of the wines produced here are known and appreciated around the world.
Umbria mainly produces Chardonnay, Grechetto, Trebbiano, and Malvasia Bianca for white wines, and Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Montepulciano, Merlot, Barbera, and Canaiolo for red wines.
But it’s Orvieto Classico that is one of the most famous white wines in Italy. Certified as Denomination of Controlled Origin in 1971, today it is one of the best known wines in the region. Orvieto Classico is made from Trebbiano, Procanico, and Grechetto grapes. Orvieto DOC also includes Orvieto Classico, and is reserved for white wines including secco, abboccato, amabile, dolce, superiore, vendemmia tardiva, and muffa nobile.
