A delicate bouquet of young peach and wet stone is nicely contracted by hints of sour citrus as the 2019 Orvieto Classico Superiore opens up in the glass. Ripe orchard fruits give way to a perfumed display of honeyed inner florals toward the close.
Silky and bright, a totally charming wine from an appellation that is all too rarely seen these days; a blend of four varieties grown in vineyards surrounding Umbria’s most beautiful city; tangy, bright and fresh; balanced and long.
This has a fresh and attractively savory style with aromas and flavors of fennel and lemons, delivered in fresh, smooth and dry mode.
Aromas of pears, green apples and citrus skin follow through to a full body, bright acidity and a crisp and clean finish. Steely and minerally.
