Bigi Orvieto Classico Secco Italy Umbria Orvieto White 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were harvested in late September through early October. Criomaceration occurred over a span of 8-9 hours, followed by static decanting of the musts for 24 hours in stainless steel tanks at 12-18°C. Alcoholic fermentation took place at temperatures of 15-17°C over a period of 10-12 days in stainless steel tanks. Prior to bottling, the wine was aged for 3 months then filtered, fined, and refrigerated.

Tasting Notes:

Floral aromas of hawthorn blossom and musk fill the nose, followed by subtle hints of almonds. On the palate, it is dry and full-bodied with a fresh flavor. The finish is distinct but attractive with notes of white peaches and bitter almonds. This is a young wine, intended to be consumed within 1-2 years of the vintage.
