WineDiva's Review

Delicious, fresh, expressive.
Fermented in stainless steel and aged one year in cask and one in bottle, this blend of Sangiovese with Colorino (for structure and colour) is Lungarotti's most popular wine worldwide, a wine born in 1968.
A proprietary brand, Rubesco is named from the Latin verb rubescere: to blush. It's label, a bas-relief depicting a harvest, from the 13th century Fontana Maggiore of Perugia, one of Italy’s most beautiful fountains.
Lungarotti produces wines from their Umbrian estates in Torgiano and Montefalco.
Sweet cherry, strawberry and hints of blueberry are layered with chocolate, vanilla, pipe tobacco and cola spices. It has notable freshness and expressive fruit on the palate to mimic the nose. Supple with a medium+ body it trails licorice and tobacco flavours. The tannins are ripe with a fine textual element; the finish sweetly delicious.
Pair: Aged cheeses, lasagna, spaghetti with red or meat sauces, rich eggplant dishes or pizza.
