Umbria General Info

Umbria, one of Italy’s few landlocked regions, has a much less illustrious reputation for wine than Tuscany, its neighbor to the west.

The small region lies in the shadow of the Apennines, its climate moderated by maritime winds funneling from the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Slow to develop and rustic in comparison to its neighbors—Umbria, ironically provided the noted physicist Enrico Fermi with a wine to toast the first successful nuclear reaction of the Manhattan Project: Orvieto.
