San Giorgio - Lungarotti 2007

This is a wine from Umbria from the iconic winery Lungarotti. I visited this winery on November 2017. See my blog dedicated to Umbria. It’s named after the saint protector of Torgiano and dedicated to the bonfires made with vine cuttings on the eve of Saint George day, to hope for a good harvest. The wine is produced in small quantities and it is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Canaiolo. The color is deep ruby with some garnet highlights , the rim is not true to his core being the wine 12 years old. The viscosity is visible and indicates a wine of 14% abv. It’s clear and filtered. The nose is inviting with notes of blackcurrant , blackberry, secondary notes of cedar, chocolate and a spice cinnamon. The palate is engaging with a full body, softened but present tannins which gives a perfect structure and longevity to the wine and finally a well balanced acidity and a long persistence. In summary a truly enjoyable wine to be paired with game dishes, steak, risotto with mushrooms on a very romantic night. PM:93
