La Piuma

2013 Orvieto Classico

Umbria Italy


Produced in a fairly large geographic area that surrounds the dramatically posed fortress town of the same name in the western part of Umbria, this Orvieto (a blend of Trebbiano, Grechetto and Chardonnay) offers enticing aromas of freshly-harvested white peaches alongside more subtle notes of honeysuckle.  On the palate, "La Piuma" ("the feather") is light and dry in style, with pure peach and apple fruit notes that are offset by a classy minerality.  Served this incredibly-priced beauty with grilled sea bass and simply-prepared chicken dishes and pastas with light cream-based sauces.  12.5% ABV HWG
