Lungarotti Rubesco, a classic chianti style wine from Umbria with a warmer character and good for ageing.
“Rubesco” is derived from the Latin verb “rubescere,” to blush, and has a joyous significance. Grapes are cultivated in clayey‐sandy soil with medium depth, good structure and limestone subsoil. Made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino, this has violet and kitchen spice aromas. The medium-bodied palate shows red cherry, raspberry jam and clove notes alongside fresh acidity and lithe tannins. The youthfully chewy texture is lifted by bright acidity, which helps extend the flavors on the perfumed, long back end.
