It’s #TanninTime – Lungarotti Montefalco

The Lungarotti’s family, one of the most important family in the Umbrian wine scene, purchased 20 hectares of vineyards in 2000 to produce Sagrantino of Montefalco, Montefalco Rosso, Sagrantino Passito and Grappa of Sagrantino, all completely organic.

Saturday, 4th May 2019, we had the pleasure of visiting the estate and tasting their wines. The program was to do a picnic, but the weather was so bad and we had a lunch in the dining room.
Valle del Menotre has served an excellent lunch with ‘typical Umbrian Starter’, spelled salad, scrambled eggs with asparagus, paired with ILBIO 2016 – Umbria IGT Rosso
