CULTURE, TOURISM, HISTORY: NOT ONLY WINE FOR LUNGAROTTI AT VINITALY

NATIONAL PREVIEW OF THE UMBRIAN WINERY'S VIN SANTO

(Vinitaly 2013). Glasses raised for Cantine Lungarotti at the upcoming Vinitaly (Veronafiere, April 7.10th), and for a participation that highlights the Umbrian winery's uniqueness: wine as a product but also involvement in other activities on the Bacchic theme such as wellness, culture and tourism.

The starting point is the Lungarotti stand (Hall 7, number B2) for a tasting of the national preview of the new 'Vin Santo Torgiano DOC 2009'. This wine is actually a comeback - after more than 40 years – of one of the family's historical labels: and even more evocative due to its proximity to the birthplace of Saint Francis of Assisi. Lungarotti will also be present, with Sagrantino 2008, at the April 6th mega-tasting event Opera Wine that recognizes Italy's 'top 100' producers according to Wine Spectator magazine. Still more tastings, on Sunday April 7th, with the 'Gambero Rosso 3 glasses Tasting 2013' featuring Rubesco Riserva 'Vigna Monticchio' and the Taste Italy by Doctor Wine event by Daniele Cernilli. Among the other events of opening day, company C.E.O. Chiara Lungarotti will participate at the presentation of the guide Slow Food Vino Quotidiano and will be the testimonial at the event 'Le Donne del Vino: 25 years of successes'. For this special occasion Chiara Lungarotti will present a Rubesco Riserva Vigna Monticchio from the 1988 harvest for tasting. Wine Spectator magazine encounters Lungarotti again on Monday, April 8th at the UmbriaTasting by Nathan Wesley, while that same evening has scheduled Lungarotti's presence at the dinner of Grandi Cru.

Another noteworthy event is the participation in Wine is more, scheduled for closing day, which awards selected companies that are particularly involved in social purpose, the environment and culture. For Lungarotti, paired with Rubesco Riserva Vigna Monticchio 2006, Teresa Severini, Marketing and Communications Director, will present the case history of the Wine Museum of Torgiano, rated by the NY Times as the 'best in Italy' and will illustrate the history of this collection created by the family and highlighting the strong bond between wine, myth and culture.
