Winemaker's Notes

Pale yellow in color with an elegant and intense perfume of Mediterranean flowers. Fresh on the palate with a full, rich taste of roasted almonds. Recommended with a variety of seafood dishes but structured enough to accompany hot starters, cured meats, pasta, omelets and even delicately roasted white meats.

Orvieto Classico is one of the best known white wines from Central Italy. It boasts a long history that dates back to medieval times, when it was the favorite wine of the Papacy, and even reaches back to the time of the Etruscan, a population who inhabited the area thousands of years ago. It is a classic Italian white, made from native varietals - 40% Grechetto, 30% Trebbiano and 30% Malvasia - grown in vineyards surrounding the historic hilltop town of Orvieto.
