Casasole Orvieto Classico Amabile 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Antinori has produced an Orvieto since 1922 and an Orvieto Classico since 1932. The Orvieto Classico 'Amabile' (semi-sweet) was the original style of Orvieto which was produced and enjoyed in the past. With the 1998 vintage the wine was given the name 'Casasole' which is in fact the name of a farmhouse to be found on the estate of Castello della Sala near Orvieto. Casasole shows with hues of straw yellow. The aroma is characterized by floral notes. The wine is nicely fruity and well-balanced with a subtly sweetish finish.

Villa Antinori is a prominent wine estate in Tuscany, Italy. Wine has been produced by the Antinori family since they came to Florence in the 14th century. The family estate, Palazzo Antinori, was purchased in Tuscany in 1506, and later that century, banker and merchant Alessandro Antinori began to produce the wines made there commercially. Generations later, in 1928, Marquis Niccolò Antinori officially created the Villa Antinori brand, with the intention of producing an elegant Chianti fit for longevity. The wine was soon found in the cellars and on the tables of of some of the most prestigious houses, restaurants and hotels. In 1931, Villa Antinori began producing a white wine from Trebbiano, and in the 1980s, Chardonnay was added to the blend for elegance. In 2001, the estate added the production of Super Tuscans to their growing portfolio. In addition to table wines, Villa Antinori also produces sparkling wines, grappa and olive oil.  Read less

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, however I couldn't have been more wrong. It is definitely not a dry wine, however it is not particularly sweet. It is simply balanced. It is very enjoyable with classic white wine foods, with desserts or even simply by itself. I recommend this wine to all of my friends and I've yet to receive any negative feed back. This is a wine you absolutely have to try.

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.
