This Orvieto Classico has a wonderful discrete straw yellow colour, limpid! Quite consistent.
It's a fresh dry wine, with lot's of white-yellow flowers and newly-cut grass in the nose, quite intense.
The variety of grapes makes it quite complex regarding the flavours, and it has a good structure with relative (quite) long persistence. Green apples are the first impression which comes to my mind, followed by some lime, minerals and salt at the end, quite tasty!
This wine is mature, hamonius, ready to go, no time to wait anymore.
I would have this Orvieto Classico to second courses like fish, not to heavy and fat though. For example, I had ravioli filled up with spinace and ricotta cheese, covered with tunafish and some garlic. A plate of seafood would good! It wouldn't be bad to try some light spicy white meat with this wine, you would be surprised.
