Vitiano Bianco Verdicchio Vermentino Umbria IGT 2013
Editorial Reviews for Vitiano Bianco Verdicchio Vermentino Umbria IGT
Lemon and honeydew melon aromas. Honeyed palate with toasted almonds, lemon, green bell pepper, cut grass and stone fruits like pear and green apple. There’s good balance between the alcohol and acidity, and it’s the green note that makes this wine more interesting than a lot of others.
Lime leaf and lemons show up on the fruity yet restrained nose along with some light mineral and pollen floral notes. Lively on the palate, there's just a hint of flesh here wrapping up the energetic acids that support the simple citrus and white peach flavors here. Ending with a lovely hint of almond and pithy citrusy flavors on the modest finish, this is simple and refreshing. 84pts

Nice little Italian white blend of vermentino and verdicchio. Easy drinking, light and crisp with some light lemon, a touch of apricot, medium acidity and a short finish. This is a food friendly wine that went well with our chicken and dumplin's.
nice nose of melons... great acidity and a lighter mouth feel.....
A fantastic value! Crisp and consistently interesting. Not a big wine but one that goes well with almost any non-red meat meal. I got it for $8. Adds variety to my chardonnay diet.

Bright straw hue, aromas of apples and floral; flavor notes of yellow apples, tree fruits with a creamy, mineral balance across the palate. A nice value dry Italian white with good acidity.
"soft-textured, caressing red that blossoms on the palate with layers of perfumed red fruit and sweet French oak" from Wine Advocate; high viscosity; great bargain

The Vitiano Bianco is a stainless steel-fermented and aged blend of equal parts Verdicchio, Viognier, and Vermentino. It offers up a perfumed nose of melons, cantaloupe, and a touch of lemon butter a
The crisp, elegant 2005 Vitiano Bianco, an equal part blend of unwooded Vermentino and Verdicchio, offers loads of tropical fruit, good body, impressive purity (a hallmark of all the Cotarella wines), and impeccable balance as well as length. It provides a heck of a glass of dry white for the price! It should be drunk during the first year of life. Kudos to Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella for continuing to deliver remarkable wines at these prices.
Zitrisch, blumig, mit einem Hauch von Stroh. Im Gaumen sehr frisch, körperbetont mit kräftigem aromatischen Finale.
Aromas of apple, peach and honey follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of fruit and a long, crisp finish. Lively and delicious. Drink now.
Vitiano Bianco is a balanced, delightful and fresh wine that offers a rich bouquet of fresh herbs, lime and ripe pears.
The stainless steel tank-aged 2003 Vitiano Bianco (a blend of 34% Vermentino, 33% Viognier, and 33% Verdicchio) exhibits lovely ripe, exotic, honeysuckle, and peach notes intermixed with pear and pine needle-like aromas. With loads of charm, plenty of fruit, and a dry, refreshing finish, it should be consumed over the next year.
Falesco's 2009 Vitiano Bianco is an attractive blend of Vermentino and Verdicchio. A crisp, floral white, the Vitiano Bianco offers lovely balance in a style best suited for near-term enjoyment. Anticipated maturity; 2010-2012.
