Today it is a stage with much up and down, but with no very chanllenging mountains. And the mountains are in the first part of the stage. But the finish is an ascent of ca 2 km, which means that this is not a stage for the sprinters.
We start in Umbria, in the birth town of Francis of Assisi. The classified wines from here are Assisi DOC. It includes many wines. They mainly produce a red from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. The same blend is also used for rosé. But they also produce varietal wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir (Pinot Nero).
