Azienda Vitivinicola La Carraia Orvieto Classico 2015
Pale yellow in color, elegant and intense aromas of Mediterranean flowers complement undertones of citrus fruits and apples. On the palate, it is fresh and full with good acidity balancing a long, pleasing finish. Pair this wine with Asian citrus salads, gremolata sauces, lightly seared bay scallops, or migas.
40% Grechetto, 30% Procanico, 30% Malvasia. Orvieto Classico is one of the best known white wines from Central Italy. Its long history begins with the Etruscans and continues in the Middle Ages when it was a Papal favorite. It is a classic Italian white, made from native varietals: Grechetto, Procanico, and Malvasia—grown in vineyards surrounding the historic hilltop town of Orvieto. To preserve its hallmark freshness, it is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks.
