Castello delle Regine: Stylish Wines from Umbria

This winery in Umbria produces stylish wines that are modern, yet
still identifiably Italian. If that sounds anachronistic, try to
remember the last time you enjoyed a wine but couldn’t really tell
where it was from. It probably wasn’t that long ago.
Sangiovese stars here, of course, on its own in a wine called Podernovo, blended deliciously with Merlot in a Rosso,
or with the additional component of Cabernet Sauvignon in a blend
called Princeps. The top of the line bottling is a powerful yet elegant
Merlot that should be proof that Italy is producing some of the most
interesting wines from this varietal. There’s also a crisp, refreshing
white to remind us that white wine isn’t always an afterthought in
Italy. Classy, delicious wines. Prices range from about $13 for the
Rosso to $45 for the Merlot. Opici Imports, Glen Rock, N.J. . .
