Palazzone Orvieto Classico Superiore Terre Vineate 2013

Sku: 043315

Tasting notes
This wine is of an intense straw color. It has an elegant nose that gradually releases a vivid and definite perfume of the white fruit from which it is made. In the mouth the impact is dense and dry and these two sensations balance each other so that the perfume is matched by a somewhat dry finish.

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.
