Orvieto, one of Italy’s most beautiful and ancient towns, is situated atop volcanic hills in picturesque Umbria – just over the border from Tuscany. The history of this wine dates back to 700 BC, and wines from Orvieto have been poetically referred to as ‘the sun of Italy in a bottle’. Produced in the traditional method, Ruffino’s Orvieto Classico D.O.C. respects history, while its easy-drinking style offers a touch of modernity. Its fruity and floral bouquet is reminiscent of green apples and meadow flowers, with smooth, refreshing flavours balanced beautifully with the wine’s structure and acidity. It also offers a unique mineral character and a long, fragrant finish with hints of almond. Serve as an aperitif or pair with light vegetable starters, vegetable soups, grilled fish or mild cheeses.
