Ruffino Orvieto Classico 2013

Ruffino Orvieto Classico 750ML 2013    
Sku: 51117

The Orvieto Classico wine is named after one of Umbria’s most beautiful cities, located on a hilltop between Florence and Rome. This city is known for its magnificent dome. Wine has been made in Orvieto since the days of the Etruscans. They recognized that the region’s characteristic tufa (chalky limestone soil) was the perfect terrain for planting grapevines. They were also the first to take advantage of the soft rock, by carving out storage cellars beneath the city. Over the years, winegrowers from the Chianti region have also maintained vineyards in Orvieto. They are driven by the desire to produce a class of white wine as well known and loved as Chianti itself. In fact, there is hardly any other Italian white wine as widely known and loved as the Orvieto Classico with its easy drinking character and distinct Italian style. Ruffino does not currently own any vineyards in Umbria, but the winery collaborates with several local growers in order to select the best grapes for the production of its Orvieto Classico. Orvieto Classico Ruffino was first produced in the fifties. It is a pleasant and refreshing wine. It is very versatile - perfect for most occasions.
