Orvieto Classico is a historic and locally important wine; this blend represents the most important white wine appellation of the Umbria region. The Salviano estate, which had been owned by the Principe Corsini since the 17th Century, has been producing Orvieto Classico blend for centuries and it was mostly delivered to Vatican and used family consumption since the 1700's. Today the property is managed by Il Marchese Incisa della Rocchetta who is the grandson of Principe Tomasso Corsini and Mario Incisa della Rocchetta; Giovanni together with his wife Tara, is carrying on the production of this wine as an ancient family tradition, respecting the same ancient blend made of only local varieties as grechetto, verdello and procanico.

2022 vintage
Harvest Note
2022 vintage was an unconventional vintage since the winter was quite mild; it followed a spring rich of rain showers and storms; the summer assisted to extremely hot temperatures and drought that went on until the end of the summer. The rain between September and October balanced the moisture pretty well and the quality of the grapes was good and with a rich sugar concentration.
Tasting Note
A blend of Procanico, Grechetto and Verdello. Refreshing, light to medium bodied wine. Some citrus and tropical fruit notes typical to Procanico and Grechetto, with also a great deal of minerality and "saltiness" in part due to the limestone soils.
Food Pairing
To be drank either on its own as an aperitif, or with light food like salads, vegetables, charcuterie.
