Torgiano Rubesco question

RicRios Nov 8, 2008 01:40 PM

I'll be in Spoleto (Umbria) in a couple weeks.
The Torgiano Rubesco sounds like a good reason to visit the Lungarotti winery in nearby Torgiano.
Sound intriguing to me the Sangiovese 70% / Canaiolo 30% mix, plus the 1 year in botte and 3 years in vetro.
Never tried it, haven't found it locally either.
"Opulent and warm bouquet, dominated by mature red fruits, with specious and animal sensations" says Duemilavini re. the 2003 Vigna Monticchio Riserva.
Any first-hand experience anybody?

    OK, I'll read between lines here.
    Or: no answer IS an answer.
    Thank you, folks!

      I've actually been to Lungarotti and sat through a whole tasting with lunch. Their wines are excellent! There Nocini is delicious. I was there in the summer of 2001. Make sure to try the San Giorgio when you are there. I remember paying something like $20 back then...now if I had to buy it in CT...it's $60. Another rec..their olive oils. Have fun...I am jealous!
