Umbria, the only region of Italy's peninsula without a sea coast, is overshadowed by its more prestigious neighbor to the east - Tuscany. This means that a lot Umbrian wines, comparable in quality and composition to those of Tuscany, can be had for much lower prices than its Tuscan neighbors. As in Tuscany, Sangiovese is the main grape of Umbria. Vocante is a blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot. It's medium bodied with flavors and aromas of tart pomegranate complemented by hints of violet and minerals with tannins on the finish. Try it with Umbrian specialties such as porchetta, or pasta alla norcina as well as spaghetti and meatballs or chili.
