Food Pairings for Santa Cristina By Antinori Orvieto Classico Campogrande
The appellation itself is divided into two parts: Orvieto Classico, produced in the area around the bluff of tufaceous rock on which the city of Orvieto is perched and Orvieto, from areas to the north and south of the classic zone. The geological components of the territory (of volcanic origin), together with with favorable and quite individual micro-climate which distinguishes the area of the Paglia and lower Tiber rivers, are the basis of the oenological success which, since time immemorial, is an integral part of the history of the city. It is no accident that Orvieto is one of the very few cities of the world whose name is synonymous with that of the wine of its surrounding territory.
