Ruffino Orvieto Classico 2010
Over the years, winegrowers from the Chianti region have also maintained vineyards in Orvieto. They are driven by the desire to produce a class of white wine as well known and loved as Chianti itself. In fact, there is hardly any other Italian white wine as widely known and loved as the Orvieto Classico with its easy drinking character and distinct Italian style.--ruffino.com
External Reviews for Ruffino Orvieto Classico
Notes of dried apricots and peaches compete with flint and floral scents in this medium-bodied, elegant offering from Ruffino. Dry yet expressive, this is a nice aperitif white.
Moderately light-bodied. Moderate acidity. Medium fruit. Minerals, citrus zest, nuts. A straightforward white with tart notes enlivening its rather minerally fruit.
Brilliant straw yellow. The bouquet is very plesant and fragrant, characterized by neat sensations of citrus ftuits and golden apples, on a flowery background that reminds fresh hints of meadow flowers and a persistent vegetal note of sage. At the palate firstly stands out an excellent freshness, well balanced by a pleasant roundness, featured by notes of meadow flowers and golden apples. The aftertaste is long and fragrant, with hits of fresh almond.
Pale straw in color, with a delicate, slightly nutty aroma. In the mouth, it is dry, crisp and fresh, with earthy flavors and a suggestion of pear, fading to a crisp and balanced finish.
A fresh, fragrant wine reminiscent of wild flowers, with nice fruity hints of green apples. Hints of lemon/ lime flavors in the mouth with a good little dose of mouthwatering acidity.

Young and fresh, this frisky white from Ruffino tickles your nose with grassy, citrus fragrances, then dances on your tongue with that same citrus intensity. A clean, crisp finish leaves you invigorated and wanting more.
