Umbria Wine Regions: The only Italian region without access to either the sea or international borders, Umbria is a solitary and soulful world apart. Often overshadowed by neighboring Tuscany, this lush and sparsely populated land is affectionately referred to as the “green heart of Italy.” Vines grow in virtually every part of the territory, with 13 Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) wines and two Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wines spread between the towns of Perugia, Spello, Bevagna, Montefalco, Todi, Spoleto, Terni and Orvieto. Umbria is best known for its white wine production. Despite changes in style over time, the Orvieto DOC (based on the Trebbiano and Grechetto grape varieties) remains the region’s largest appellation. Although best-known for its white wines, Umbria’s two top level DOCG designations are for red wines. The native red grape Sagrantino has gained prominence in the Montefalco area, creating wines of great depth and power (Sagrantino di Montefalco Docg). Sangiovese is the region’s most planted grape variety, red or white. It accounts for around 22 percent of vineyard area. This is the principal variety of the second of the region’s DOCG wines Torgiano Rosso Riserva.
