More information about Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG - Lungarotti

The Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG - Tenuta di Torgiano by Lungarotti has an intense ruby red color with violet nuances in the glass. The nose reveals an elegant and complex bouquet with aromas reminiscent of blackberry, sour cherry and delicate violets, accompanied by refined wood aromas, coffee, cocoa, balsamic notes and hints of cloves and pepper. Very concentrated on the palate, harmonious, elegant, warm, round, with an impressive, powerful structure, the Rubesco Riserva presents ravishing tannins, lively, pleasantly fresh acidity, fruity, full-bodied and multi-layered on the palate. The finish is remarkably long with a pleasantly spicy aftertaste.

Vinification of the Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG Tenuta di Torgiano

Vigna Monticchio is a single vineyard on the Brufa hill, at 300 meters above sea level, 15 hectares, of which only 12 hectares are used for the production of Rubesco Riserva Vigna Monticchio. The Sangiovese grapes grow on a very variable soil, in which marl, clay and sandy layers alternate several times. The grapes are harvested by hand at the beginning of September.
Mash fermentation on the skins takes place in stainless steel tanks for 25 to 28 days, after which the wine is aged for a year in oak barrels and barriques. After light filtration and bottling, the wine matures for a further 5 years in the bottle before being marketed.

The Rubesco Riserva is an exclusive Rubesco selection from the vineyard of the same name and the flagship of the Lungarotti winery in the world. For years, it has been one of the best wines in Italy, the highest expression of the Umbrian terroir, the landscape and the people of this region. The DOCG for this wine was awarded in 1990 and retroactively extended to the entire production from 1983 onwards.

The Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG has a potential of 30 to 35 years and more if stored well.

Dining recommendations for the Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Torgiano Riserva DOCG from Lungarotti

A great wine to enjoy and contemplate by the fireplace, but also an excellent accompaniment to refined international cuisine. Try it with fillet of beef with Japanese mustard, pigeon with black truffle, roast ox with wasabi, Peking duck, pheasant, mature and spicy cheeses.
The wine should be opened and decanted 1 to 2 hours before serving to allow its elegant flavor to fully develop. A large red wine goblet and a serving temperature of 16 to 18°C are recommended.
