Much drier and with more depth than I expected. Really has a slight vermouth/spice on the finish. A great picnic wine on a hot day for those who wish more than a thin Pinot Grigio and a great price to boot.

This is a very pleasant and lovely wine. Better not to serve it too cold; I served it right out of my fridge, which is set pretty cold. The refreshing lemon and grapefruit flavors of the wine gradually emerged as I, as patiently as possible, waited for it to get a little closer to cool than cold. This oenological libation was paired with a "Maitre Pierre" "Tarte d'Alsace" from Trader Joe's - a delicious pizza-like flatbread covered with ham, carmelized onions, & Gruyere cheese. I've always found Orvieto Classico to pair very well with light-to-mildly flavored dishes. Perhaps one could call it a poor person's Roero; I like it as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc - for a change of pace, for its slight unctuousness, and for the refreshing lemon and grapefruit it displays in the nose and on the palate. A real pleaser for the price. The kind of thing I can expect to count on when I go to Trader Joe's.
