DOCG Torgiano Rosso Riserva
The production area includes the entire territory of the Town of Torgiano, with the exclusion of the alluvial land along the course of the Tiber and Chiascio rivers, as well as the lands at the bottom of the valley and along the hollows that descend on the Northern side of the hill of Brufa.
This territory, the first to be awarded the DOC in Umbria in 1968, was also the first to obtain a DOCG in 1990. These wines are everywhere worthy ambassadors of Umbrian wine, even outside of our Country.
