Umbria is the ‘green heart’ of Italy, a landlocked region east of Tuscany that remains one of Europe’s best kept culinary and wine secrets. With a mantra for quality over quantity, its finest wines – both red and white – are deeply complex and beautifully structured to pair with the great cuisine of the region. It is with this in mind that we offer our Pandolfi Alberici Orvieto Classico, a classic Trebbiano / Grechetto blend born from the unique volcanic tufa soils that grace the best vineyards here.
The wine’s color is a shimmering pale gold in the glass. The nose is perfumed with a unique mix of citronella and white peach that hints at nuances of fresh herbs and chalk dust. Rich flavors of pear and lemon curd are tempered by leaner hints of orange peel and grapefruit that keep the palate in a more crisp inviting style. The refreshing nature of the palate is retained through the finish with a cool streak of minerality and a vibrant acidity that carries flavors of lemon peel and green apple.
