The ORVIETO DOC appellation was given official recognition in the year 1971, and in the following four decades it has had an exceptional growth both in terms of its quality and of the quantities produced: Orvieto is, today, one of Italy’s most widely known white wines on a worldwide basis and represents, on its own, approximately three fourths of all the appellation wine produced in the Umbria region of Italy. The appellation itself is divided into two parts: Orvieto Classico, produced in the area around the bluff of tufaceous rock on which the city of Orvieto is perched and Orvieto, from areas to the north and south of the classic zone. The geological components of the territory (of volcanic origin), together with a favorable and quite
individual micro­climate which distinguishes the area of the Paglia and lower Tiber rivers, is the basis of the fame of a wine which, since time immemorial, is an integral part of the history of the city. It is no accident that Orvieto is one of the very few cities of the world whose name is synonymous with that of the wine of its surrounding territory.


Tasting Notes - "Straw yellow in color, the wine's aromas are delicate with fruity and floral notes which recall tropical fruit and orange flowers. The flavors are soft and fresh with a savory finish and an aftertaste of white fruit. Principally Procanico and Grechetto, along with a small part of other authorized white grape varieties. The grapes were destemmed and pressed as delicately as possible. The must was chilled to approximately 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to favor a natural settling of impurities. After racking, the wine went into stainless steel tanks where it fermented at temperatures held to a maximum of 64° Fahrenheit (18° centigrade). The finished wine was conserved in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade), and its preparation in small batches maintained its freshness and fragrance.
