"Corniolo" Colli del Trasimeno DOC Rosso 2017 - Duca della Corgna

Corniolo is an interesting red wine proposed by Duca della Corgna. Colli del Trasimeno Rosso, comes from a blend of Sangiovese in clear majority, with 20% of Trasimeno Gamay, and about 10% of Cabernet Sauvignon. An important and gratifying wine that matures for about 12 months in French oak barrels located in the historic cellars of the sixteenth century palace of the Duca della Corgna in Città della Pieve. In the glass it has a beautiful deep ruby red colour with violet hues. The nose is broad and fine, pleasantly fruity, with a nice spice to make it even more intriguing. In the mouth it is dry, full and elegant. The previously perceived fruit returns, always accompanied by a subtle sweet spice. Try it with a good, tasty roast beef, served at a maximum of 18 degrees in large tasting glasses that promote perfect oxygenation.

Located in the heart of Etruscan Umbria, Cantina del Trasimeno is a beautiful cooperative that was founded thanks to the commitment of the winegrowers of the municipalities that overlook the shores of Lake Trasimeno, and is today one of the most important Umbrian realities. In addition to the classic traditional grape varieties such as Grechetto, Trebbiano and Sangiovese, the winery also successfully works with different international varieties. In particular, for years it has been the protagonist of a study aimed at enhancing the Gamay, also known here as Gamay Perugino or Trasimeno Gamay. Over the years the structure of the Cantina del Trasimeno has grown very large, reaching the point of vinifying almost 12,000 tons of grapes in the early 1980s. So, after an inevitable downsizing phase, linked to the progressive ageing of the vineyards, the winery has literally changed gears, focusing no longer on quantity but especially on the production of high quality wines. Work has thus begun on the renovation of the vineyards and winemaking facilities. The Duca della Corgna line was created with this in mind, taking its name from the Duchy of Castiglione del Lago and its founder, Marquis Ascanio dell' Corgna. Today the winery can count on about 200 members who work with passion on a total area of about 300 hectares of vineyards.
