    Winemaker Notes

    This wine comes from the most beautiful piece of land on our estate. It is named after the generations of small farmers who tilled the land. From this land has been born a wine that is refined by being laid down in bottles in an ancient cave carved out of tufo over which grows a chestnut wood. The complexity, the aroma and the freshness of the fruit remain intact with the passing of the years and the wine has shown an astonishing capacity to age beautifully.

    Intense straw color with a sharp grassy note. This wine has a notably prolonged nose that is both deep and refined. In the mouth the wine is silky but with sufficient body to hold and extend a full, vibrant and persistent sensation.

    With dishes that are not only strongly flavored but are of the style and perfection of our traditional Umbrian recipes for white meat and chicken.

    Palazzone, Italy
    Palazzone Palazzone Vineyards Winery Image
    The Palazzone estate in Orvieto is practically the last bastion of estate-bottled wine in this historic Umbrian appellation that dates back to Etruscan times. The wines from this area have been respected for over two millennia, but modern-day carelessness and greed for quantity over quality have taken their toll on its once stellar reputation. This is why we thank goodness for heroes like Giovanni Dubini, the owner of Palazzone, who will never accept defeat.

    Giovanni began bottling his own Orvieto only in 1982, and even now, nearly forty years later, he still does everything he can to keep the dream of Orvieto alive. Year in and year out, he makes honest, classic wines with only fruit from his own vineyards. No shortcuts in his vineyards, no tricks in the cellar, just pure, historic Orvieto terroir in every bottle. Lest you think Orvieto is at best a simple wine, a recent tasting of mind-bending older vintages of his flagship Terre Vineate stretched back to the early 1990s, and the wines were strikingly beautiful, alive and incredibly fresh.

    Giovanni says this is only possible because of terroir. The soil of Orvieto is complex: 3 million years ago, this land was under the sea, so there is a lot of sedimentary clay and limestone with very little organic matter. About 250,000 years ago, volcanic eruptions from Monte Vulsini (now Lake Bolsena) covered this area with volcanic rock, ash and pumice, but most of those layers have since eroded away, with an important exception: Rocca Ripesena, a vestigial outcropping of that volcanic tuff, still protects Palazzone from extreme weather. This elevated protection paired with Giovanni’s slightly north-facing vineyards help to keep his fruit cool during scorching Umbrian summers.

    “What keeps an appellation producing wine for 2500 years?” Giovanni asks playfully. “If Piero Antinori, one of the richest and most famous winemakers in Tuscany, decided to make his great white wine in Umbria – it’s for a reason. If Luca Signorelli [renaissance artist extraordinaire], had in his contract both gold and Orvieto wine to paint the fresco of the Last Judgement in the cathedral of Orvieto in the 1500s, it should tell you something. If the wine wasn’t good or didn’t have potential, surely it would have been relegated to history. But we haven’t stopped. There is a huge potential here.” And we won’t stop, either. In fact, we are just beginning.
