Winemaker's Notes:

Made from a blend of 40% Grechetto, 30% Trebbiano and 30% Malvasia grown in varied vineyards surrounding the historic hilltop town of Orvieto. The wine was vinified in stainless steel tank and reveals loads of fresh fruit character that lingers through the almond-like finish.

About La Carraia:

La Carraia was founded in 1976 by the Gialetti and Cotarella families. Riccardo Cotarella, respected throughout Italy and abroad as a leading authority in the production and marketing of Italian wines, is the winemaker at this estate. La Carraia began as a producer of bulk wines for top of the line estates such as Ruffino and Rocca delle Macie.

Today, the winery owns a total of 200 acres and is bottling its own wines in the heart of the Orvieto Classico, and a small amount of the excellent single vineyard Orvieto: Poggio Calvelli. The remaining property is planted to Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. La Carraia is the leading estate in the new emerging production of excellent red wines from the Orvieto zone.
