Umbrian Wine Tasting at Enone

Did you know that some of the best dessert wines come from a special kind of mold growing on the grape vines? A group of twenty Umbra students learned this and some of the basics of wine making and tasting from Sommelier Sylvia Bartolini this past Monday evening at the Enone wine bar. After braving the unseasonably cold and rainy weather during the walk down to Corso Cavour, students warmed their palettes with three glasses of typical Umbrian wines and a plate of bruschette and small gusti. After examining the colors and smells (black cherry? peach? toothpaste?!) of the 2006 Fanini Robbiano Chardonnay, 2004 Antonelli Montefalco Rosso Riserva, and 2005 Lungarotti Dulcis, the Montefalco Rosso won out as the favorite wine of the evening, pairing nicely with the bruschetta as well as the heavier mortadella and cheese.
