Wine AdvocateHere is a great Italian white to pair with summer salads or tomato bruschetta. The 2016 Orvieto is made with a blend of indigenous white grapes. Orvieto is characterized by easy aromas and moderate intensity. The wine is very effective when it comes to satiating the palate and keeping the mouth refreshed.

Wine EnthusiastSpring blossom and orchard fruit aromas lead the nose. On the bright, linear palate, vibrant acidity offsets notes of white peach, pineapple and citrus.
