San Giorgio Umbria Rosso IGT is a full-bodied and solidly structured wine, with an intense ruby red colour with garnet highlights. Its bouquet is fruity, with notes of cassis and blueberry, plum jam, elegant woodiness with hints of cinnamon, cocoa and a balsamic undertone. Its taste is concentrated, dense and pulpy, with ripe tannins and a long, persistent finish.
San Giorgio Umbria Rosso IGT is made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes grown in the terroir of Torgiano (PG), trained on a double spurred cordon system and harvested in boxes between September and October. The grapes are then fermented in steel vats with maceration on the skins for fifteen to twenty days, matured in barriques for twelve months and aged for a year in bottles before release. San Giorgio Umbria Rosso IGT has a very long life if stored well.
Served at a temperature between 16-18 °C in a wide goblet, Lungarotti San Giorgio wine is exalted with roast red meat, game and spicy cheeses. Its label, taken from Raphael's famous painting in the Louvre, depicts St. George and the dragon in homage to the traditional feast of St. George on 23 April in Torgiano, during which propitiatory bonfires are lit in the vineyards with the pruning waste.
