Piana Grande

Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC

Type of soil

The plots dedicated to the Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC are located on the west-facing side of the estate, at about 340 m above sea level, with an excellent south/southwesterly exposure. The soil was part of the seabed in the Pliocene era and is thus chiefly composed of sand, fossils, and seashells.

Grape Variety

As per DOC regulations, this is a blend of several indigenous grapes - most notably the quintessentially local Grechetto and Trebbiano (Procanico) grapes. The vineyard is carefully monitored throughout each phenological stage, with an eye to achieving a limited, high-quality production.

Vinification

The vinification process takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine is kept on lees for two months, to develop flavour and structure. After about two months of bottle-ageing, the wine is ready to be enjoyed.

Sensory Evaluation

The colour is a delicate straw yellow, with fresh scent of flowers and fruits and tones of white peach and apricot. Fragrant, delicate, and aromatic; of balanced acidity.

Food pairing

Perfect match for this wine are quiche, fried bites, delicate first courses, fresh cheese, and white meat.
