This is a soft and fruity wine that goes very well with lightly seasoned buttery turkey and white rice.
Floral, almost tropical nose with melon and pear. Crisp and lightly sweet with tropical fruit and earthy minerals. Light- to mid-bodied with adequate tannic quality and a great balance of fruit and acidity. Quaffable.
External Reviews for Ruffino Orvieto Classico
SENSORY PROPERTIES Colour: Straw yellow Aroma: The bouquet is very fruity and flowery with fresh notes of meadow flowers, chrysanthemum, golden apple and fig. Tasting profile: The taste is refreshing, but smooth, thanks to the balance between structure, acidity and fruity notes. The aftertaste is long and fragrant, reminiscent of fresh almond.
