Wine maker notes
Giovanni Dubini tackles the delicate art of adjusting the proportions of the five different grape varieties allowed in Orvieto D.O.C. The "Terre Vineate" shows a deep straw-yellow colour. It has an elegant, vivid bouquet with a definite scent of hazelnut. The impact on the palate is intense yet refreshingly dry and the finish is a perfect balance between the perfume of the fruits and a touch of bitterness.
