Umbria, in central Italy, is a region of lush rolling hills, hilltop villages and iconic, historic towns. The latter are exemplified by Orvieto and Assisi. Umbria, like Marche and Lazio, is best known for its white wine production. Despite changes in style over time, the Orvieto DOC remains the region's largest appellation. It accounts for over ten percent of the overall Umbrian wine production.
