The climatic and pedologic characteristics of this territory are similar. The hills stretching from Montefi ascone to Orvieto are partly volcanic partly sedimentary in origin and both kinds of soil are particularly suited to the growing of vines as witnessed by the century-old tradition of the zone.

I had heard that this was a very good wine, and I was surprised to see it was priced under $20. I really enjoyed this wine. It was ready to drink, and while it wasn't totally over the top (which I enjoy) it was pleasant and delicious. If I could buy cases of this wine, I would!
