The Italian region with the capital Perugia is located in the heart of Italy and is one of the few regions not bordering a sea. Wine-growing existed in Umbria on both sides of the river Tiber even before the Romans in the time of the Etruscans and the eponymous Umbrians. Archaeological finds and wine cellars more than 3,000 years old, laboriously driven into the volcanic rocks, are historical witnesses to this. After the fall of the Roman Empire, viticulture came to a complete standstill for centuries. It was not until the 1950s that a new start was made. The landscape as well as the climatic and soil conditions are very similar to those of the region of...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, the beginnings go back at least to before 1,000 BC. It was at this time that the Etruscans appeared in central Italy, settling areas in the four regions of today's Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The origins of Italian wine culture lie above all in the Greek colonisation, which brought Greek wine culture to the peninsula, beginning in the 10th century BC on the island of Sicily as well as Campania and Calabria. The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the ideal land for...

The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Sagrantino Rosso and Sagrantino di Montefalco. According to a hypothesis that can no longer be verified, the variety was introduced to Umbria in the Middle Ages by Byzantine monks from Greece or by Franciscans from Asia Minor. This is also indicated by the name, which is possibly derived from "sacro" (holy). According to a hypothesis which is also not verifiable, it is said to be a descendant of the ancient grape variety "Itriola" mentioned by Pliny the Elder (23-79). The late ripening vine is susceptible to downy mildew. It produces dark ruby red,...

Synonyms are Africano, Angolano, Cordiscio, Cordisco, Cordisio, Montepulciano Crni, Montepulciano Cordesco, Montepulciano Cordisco, Monte Pulciano, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Montepulciano Primatico, Montepulciano Spargolo, Morellone, Sangiovese Cardisco, Sangiovese Cordisco, Uva Abruzzese, Uva Abruzzi and Violone.
