Torgiano Rubesco question

RicRios | Nov 8, 2008 01:40 PM

I'll be in Spoleto (Umbria) in a couple weeks.
The Torgiano Rubesco sounds like a good reason to visit the Lungarotti winery in nearby Torgiano.
Sound intriguing to me the Sangiovese 70% / Canaiolo 30% mix, plus the 1 year in botte and 3 years in vetro.
Never tried it, haven't found it locally either.
"Opulent and warm bouquet, dominated by mature red fruits, with specious and animal sensations" says Duemilavini re. the 2003 Vigna Monticchio Riserva.
Any first-hand experience anybody?
