Having this with mom, Carol, Christy and Mayra in Orvieto. We are loving it. Carol and Christy taste peach. I think crisp, apples, a little thicker than the 3 Orvieto Classicos we tried earlier.

An Italian white blend of 50% Grechetto, 30% Procanico, & 20% Malvasia. Crisp. Fragrant. Clean. Citrus. Dry fruits. Worth a try! Cheers

Viscous, nice full body. Having with oysters. Dry, lemony finish. Alcohol comes thru a bit on end. Bigger bodied from other Orvietos I've had.

A little mustardy in the nose, one of the only indications this isn't cab sauv. A little smoke and white pepper, some floral and tropical notes. Cream and oak on the finish. Just okay.

Light body crisp with mineral and vibrant acidity! Fun wine to go with white fish, grilled fish tacos, oysters in Bodega Bay, cheese plate!
