Clear pale color. Somewhat "sweet" bouquet. Initial sip is quite light--almost watery, then, farther in the palate, fruit -- table grapes -- emerges. Altough I definitely get a table grapes flavor, there is no sweetness. US$7.99 at Total Wines.

Totally an emotional response here. This wine reminds me so much of the floral and fruity blend that was on the tables when I lived so briefly in Umbria. Delicate, almost like a jasmine bouquet, surrounded by fresh cut grass and the zest of a blood orange. This vintage seems just as delightful as its predecessors.

At $7.95 this is a good value, everyday white wine. Straw yellow in color. The aroma is floral and slightly fruity. The palate flavor is refreshing and smooth with tastes of apple and lemon. The finish is long with a hint of spice.

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.

The bouquet is very pleasant and fragrant, characterized by neat sensations of citrus fruits and golden apples, on a flowery background that reminds fresh hints of meadow flowers and a persistent vegetal note of sage. On 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.

In the mouth, it is dry, crisp and fresh, with earthy flavors and a suggestion of pear, fading to a crisp and balanced finish. Enjoy with seafood, white meats and cheeses.

The Orvieto Classico wine is named after one of Umbria's most beautiful cities, located on a hilltop between Florence and Rome. This city is known for its magnificent dome.

Colour:Brillant straw yellowAroma: The bouquet is very distinctive: fruity and flowery with hints of fresh picked meadow flowers, citrus fruits, golden apple and sage with a characteristic mineral touch in the finish.Tasting profile: The taste is lightly sweet and smooth thanks to the balance between structure, acidity and fruity notes. The aftertaste is long and fragrant, with neat hits of fresh almond due to the chalky soil of the Orvieto production area.

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.
