Bigi Orviéto Classico Amabile 2009
Harvest was carried out at the end of September through early October. During the first 8-9 hours, the grapes underwent a criomaceration, immediately followed by static decanting of the musts for 24 hours in stainless steel tanks at 12-18°C. Throughout the next 10-12 days, fermentation occurred at temperatures of 15-17°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged for 3 months before being filtered, fined, refrigerated, then bottled.
Food Pairings for Bigi Orviéto Classico Amabile
On the nose, there are strong aromas of wild flowers, honey and musk. Subtle hints of bitter almonds follow. Sweet, yet fresh, this is a well-balanced wine with a pleasant, lingering finish of ripe fruit. Best when consumed young.
