Villa Barbi Orvieto Classico 2012

Well balanced acidity and minerality. Crisp but plays second fiddle to food; not overbearing. Light on fruit.

Blend of 4 white grapes. Grechetto, Vermentino, Sauv Blanc and Proconico. Very light on the fruit. Faint notes of white peaches and melon. A hint of green olive and salinity. Medium Body. Lots of minerality and acidity. Nice compliment to food.

Very acidic, great with a creamy lasagna. Too acidic to drink without food.

Great lighthearted yet medium bodied wine. Makes for a great companion.

Large estates in Umbria. Blend of grapes. Floral nose with white fruits and melon and hints of green olives. Palate of acids and some minerals balanced by fruit and white flowers. Complex finish. 13% ABV. JL tasting 10/11/16 Central Italy. $12.74 excellent value. Chalky soil with shells. Salinity in profile.

Delicious! Great table wine, by itself or with light food.

Citrus, stone fruit and intense minerals erupt in the mid palate to perfectly balance a bracing acidity.
