La Strada Del Sagrantino in Umbria

From the Diary of Axel Ritenis (2010)


“La Strada del Sagrantino (The Sagrantino Road) is the advised route for discovering the Sagrantino wine of Umbria.Dubbed by some as the “green heart of Italy”, this area of Umbria is known for its lush vegetation and heritage-rich Medieval hamlets. Sagrantino is the best known DOC denomination wine from here, and the wine trail includes an assortment of publicly-managed consortiums and private wineries guaranteed to offer the wine tourist a unique experience.It is possible to tour the zone of Montefalco and Bevagna tasting the Sagrantino and Rosso di Montefalco wines on the way, as well as purchasing fine olive oil directly from the producers.The wine route sits in the centre of Umbria, an equal distance south of Perugia and north of Terni. The towns and comune of reference are, in a clockwise direction, Bevagna, Montefalco, Castel Ritaldi, Giano dell’Umbria and Gualdo Cattaneo.”
