Ruffino Orvieto Classico
Brilliant straw yellow. The bouquet is very plesant and fragrant, characterized by neat sensations of citrus ftuits and golden apples, on a flowery background that reminds fresh hints of meadow flowers and a persistent vegetal note of sage. 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.
