Palazzone Orvieto 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

A rich Orvieto, with ripe and slightly exotic fruit character and a hint of spice. Good body and freshness, with a slightly crisp finish. Drink now.

Il Palazzone is extremely small, making under 1.000 cases of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG with the utmost focus on quality. The vineyards are located in three different subzones of Montalcino, thereby bringing to each bottle different aspects of Montalcino's renowned terroir. Agricoltura responsabile and precision viticulture in the vineyards mean low yields, healthy fruit and farming without the use of chemical pesticides.  Grapes are hand picked at harvest and the estate has been fermenting in wood since the 2011 vintage. All Brunellos spend over 40 months aging in large Slavonian oak barrels, and the wines are marked by distinct balance, elegance and austerity.    Read less

A lively, medium-bodied white with subtle aromas of peach, honeydew melon and mineral, and brisk acidity.

Just in time for spring, a great value out of Italy! A blend of local grapes, this Orvieto is bright and crisp, and able to stand up to a range of dishes from creamy seafood to spicy Asian food.
