Lungarotti – Rubesco Riserva DOCG Vigna Monticchio

R905.00

A DOCG wine since 1990 with retroactive recognition back to the 1983 vintage. Considered one of Italy’s best red wines, it is a profound expression of Umbria. perfect harmony between power and elegance. Sangiovese and Canaiolo from the Monticchio vineyard. An elegant wine with solid structure, deep ruby colour and complex aroma that recalls marasca cherries and blackberries, followed by notes of violet, light mentholated hints and a spicy finish. A wine of great concentration, fruity and slightly balsamic, it has soft and velvety tannins with a long, lingering finish. It pairs well with dishes of refined international cuisine, fillet with pepper and Japanese mustard, pigeon with black truffles, roast beef with wasabi, Peking duck, guinea hen “alla ghiotta”, aged cheeses.
