Tasting notes

"All the richness, depth and structure you’d expect from a costly Super Tuscan, but modestly priced" Davy Zyw
Buyer for Italy
Map showing Umbria IGT
Tasting note information
Tuscany hogs all central Italy’s limelight when it comes to wine, but Umbria, its southerly extension, is a treasure trove for quality, too. Indeed, Italy’s most famous godfather of wine, the Marquis Piero Antinori, has discovered this and bought his own Umbrian estate. Next door to it lies Valentino Cirulli’s property, that dates back to 1861. Fourth generation, Valentino studied agronomy and after years as a researcher returned to his roots in the 1980s. He has carefully built up 50 hectares of vineyards, converted them to organic, and built a new winery. You can sense his love of the land in his superb wines. Hèdonè Rosso is a classic blend of Sangiovese with Bordeaux’s Cabernets and Merlot. Barrique aged, it’s a must with lamb or ragù.
