Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) We source the grapes for this wine in the Orvieto Classico DOC, noted for its plantings of white grape varieties. The Orvieto blend is made up of grape varieties that are indigenous to Umbria: Grechetto, Procanico, Verdello, and Canaiolo Blanco. After fermentation, we briefly age Orvieto in stainless steel vats until it is bottled.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) Brilliant straw yellow. The bouquet is very pleasant and fragrant, characterized by neat sensations of citrus fruits and golden apples, on a flowery background that reminds fresh hints of meadow flowers and a persistent vegetal note of sage. At the palate firstly stands out an excellent freshness, well balanced by a pleasant roundness, featured by notes of meadow flowers and golden apples. The aftertaste is long and fragrant, with hits of fresh almond.
