Orvieto Vignarco Classico Palazzone
A crisp, charming white to put you on the hills of Umbria, inhaling the piquant aroma of nearby olive trees. Vibrant Grechetto gives notes of meyer lemon, juicy acidity and a silky texture leading to cravings of shellfish, poached and sprinkled with herbs, squirted with citrus, served alongside a light tomato coulis.
Palazzone produces delicious white wines from Umbria's indigenous varietals featuring tasty fruit, nerve and zip! The estate, which began bottling in 1982, has mastered the delicate art of adjusting the proportions of the five different grape varieties allowed in the blend by the Orvieto D.O.C.: Procanico, Verdello, Grechetto, Drupeggio and Malvasia Toscana, the very same used hundreds of years ago in this region with Ancient-Roman roots. This bottling is mostly Procanico and Grechetto (80%) with a small part of Drupeggio, Verdello and Malvasia. Stainless steel fermentation under temperature control.
Grapes: Procanico, Verdello, Grechetto, Drupeggio and Malvasia Toscana
