Tuscany is surely the home of the GREAT TUSCANS: the NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO, the BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO , just to name the most popular, and when you ask somebody about Italian reds, invariably the world Tuscany comes to mouth.
However, Umbria, often regarded as a secondary destination, hides treasures that need to be discovered in terms of wine production. WINES like the MONTEFALCO, the ORVIETO, the SAGRANTINO, the LAMBORGHINI are made with indigenous grapes and enhance the main ingredients of the Umbrian cuisine, that’s why our project A WEEK IN ITALY has been enriched by the PIETRASANTA TO GUBBIO WINE TRAIL.
While staying at the ALBERGO PIETRASANTA, www.albergopietrasanta.com , guests will be taken to the niche of the niche cellars to taste wines known only to the happy few, starting from the Montecarlo area, where the best Tuscan white is produced and going on to the best cellars of the reds.
But the real surprise for those who consider themselves wine connoisseurs will be Umbria and guests staying at PARK HOTEL AI CAPPUCCINI, www.parkhotelaicappuccini.it, will be taking you to discover the best wine productions that WINE SPECTATOR has finally and recently discovered.
