Umbria

The best-known Umbrian wine is Orvieto, a crisp and peachy white wine produced in the town of the same name. This light wine made with Procanico and Malvasia, accounts for nearly 80 percent of all DOC wine made, and is one of the best-known in all Italy. The red Sagrantino di Montefalco wines are bold and powerful, from the hillside vineyards near the village of Montefalco. The elegant and delicate Torgiano Rosso Riserva is also an excellent red wine made in the diminutive village of Torgiano. Both Montefalco and Torgiano boast DOCG status. Grape varieties used in white wines include Trebbiano (called Procanico locally), Verdello, Grechetto, Drupeggio and Malvasia. The main red wine grape variety is Sangiovese, although Gamay, Canaiolo, Trebiano and Sagrantino (a native black grape variety found only around the hillsides of Montefalco) are also used.
