for this region?

 

Orvieto Classico is a white wine produced in a specific zone within the Orvieto region of Umbria in central Italy. The word “classico” refers to both the original growing area of the grapes and what is considered its highest quality viticultural source. Orvieto Classico centers around the town of Orvieto and extends to Lake Corbara and west to the border of Lazio. 
 
Orvieto Classico is a dry wine, although the zone also encompasses its sweet version. The wines are a blend of at least 60% Procanico and Grechetto, with the remaining 40% containing Verdello, Malvasia Toscana, Canaiolo Blanco, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer and/or Sauvignon Blanc, as long as they are all sourced from within the classical growing area. 
 
For more information on Orvieto history and production, please see Orvieto.

  • Casasole Orvieto Classico Amabile 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I am a wine drinker, and I don't drink much else (in regards to hard liquor or beer) and this is by far my favorite wine. I have sampled a large variety of wine, for an equally large price range and I was very surprised by Casasole Orvieto. Considering it was a very inexpensive bottle of wine, I figured it's taste would reflect the price, howeve... Read More

  • Melini White Blend Orviéto Classico 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Cranberry juice cocktail on the nose. Sour strawberries on the palate. Crisp and delicious. Almost like taking a bite out of an ice cold apple. Read More

  • Casasole Orvieto Classico DOC 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is likely one of the best values in wine under $11/bottle!Off dry with lots of floral and fruity aromas. Decent acidity on the palate and full of tart fruitiness. This has many of the qualities a Riesling and/or Gewurtz has, plus it's DOCG rated! Robust, refreshing and crisp! Read More

    Wine review by Juanitamm


  • Casasole Orvieto Classico Amabile 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was recommended to me by a friend. I will not buy any other wine. It's not too sweet nor is it too dry. For me a perfect wine to drink anytime. When I have guests and share everyone comments on how nice it is. I'm not a conniseur, just someone who likes the occasional glass. This wine fits the bill to a T. Read More
