Wines for summer: here are five rosés made in Umbria not to be missed

Pink. So were the first wines in history: they were left to macerate for a very short time and were certainly not suitable for aging. Today rosé wines have become the wines for summer, very fresh, lively and energetic: until a few years ago mistreated, suspected of poor quality and thought to lack character, rosé wines finally seem to have shaken off the prejudices of critics and consumers, partly because producers are investing in the enhancement of local varieties and improved product quality.

Central-southern Italy, unlike northern Italy, is historically devoted to the production of still rosés: in Umbria great resonance has the rosés that are born in the Lake Trasimeno area but, in this regard, the areas of Montefalco, Orvieto and Terni are also not lacking in excellence.

In fact, one of the Top 50 Italian still rosés of 2021 was born in the Terni area, just a few kilometers from Marmore Falls: it is Francesco Annesanti‘s Nasciolo, a pure Barbera of unparalleled freshness. Disarmingly drinkable, the Nasciolo remains true to the more authentic soul of barbera, while contaminating it with an extra nod of panache. It glides by in a flash, especially when paired with pizza and charcuterie.

He is followed by Madrevite‘s La Bisbetica, a “lacustrine” rosé, vinified on the shores of Lake Trasimeno. It is a straightforward and genuine Gamay del Trasimeno, cherry-colored; fragrant, savory and particularly inviting, it almost acts as a tonic, especially on summer evenings. Its golden hour is undoubtedly the aperitif hour.

It is, on the other hand, a 50 percent syrah and 50 percent sagrantino La Peschiera di Pacino, rosé, from Raína; well rooted in the territory of Montefalco (PG), it is a wine with an unrelenting sip, unwavering even when faced with meat, grilled vegetables and soups. Unfiltered and unclarified, this is an irresistible rosé marked by the pronounced notes of macerated strawberry, raspberry, clove, and eucalyptus.

Fattoria Mani di Luna‘s Rosé Osé, on the other hand, goes all out for boldness: here sangiovese is combined with malvasia to give substance and aromaticity, concentration and freshness. It is a rosé with a crafted profile, throbbing and passionate, capable of enlivening any occasion.

Finally, of similar physiognomy is Cantina Margò‘s Rosato; in this case, too, in fact, the direction – in the vineyard and in the cellar – is given by a dialogue, constant and fruitful, with the earth. Carlo Tabarrini, who has given shape to a dream with Cantina Margò, favors spontaneity; his Rosato is a pure Sangiovese, extraordinarily vivid. With generous aromas, it combines savoriness and texture, fierceness and authenticity; given the limited production, it is good to stock up.
