A delicious new aperitif wine from the pictureque vineyards of Barberani in Orvieto. The crisp and refreshing Oriveto is souced from the limestone soils and moderate, lakeside climate of Barberani's vineyards in the "Classico" zone of this famous Umbrian appellation. With plump tree fruits and a refreshing minerality, the Orvieto Classico is essential drinking for the Italian wine lover.

Its Origins

Barberani is one of Umbria’s most respected producers, famous for its clean, pure-tasting wines. The vineyards lie on hills overlooking Lake Corbara, close to the city of Orvieto in the south-west of the province, which lies south of Tuscany in Italy’s centre. Of the estate’s 80-odd hectares, 50 are dedicated to vineyards and olive groves. The close proximity of the lake below helps regulate the microclimate here by preventing extreme variations in temperature. Advised by consultant oenologist Maurizio Castelli, the estate, which uses no chemical herbicides or pesticides in its vineyards, is renowned for its clean, pure-tasting wines. By law, Orvieto is made from a combination of five grape varieties, of which the finest is grechetto, a Barberani speciality. Around 20,000 bottles of it are produced in every vintage under the designation of Grechetto Umbria IGT. Barberani also produce a fragrant dessert wine called Calcaia, from trebbiano di Toscana and grechetto grapes concentrated by noble rot (muffa nobile). It is similar to Sauternes in style but with a characteristic lightness of touch. More recently high class barrel-aged reds have been introduced, using sangiovese, merlot and cabernet. These can rival Tuscany’s best in quality, but not in price.
