2019 Classico Superiore Tenuta di Salviano

Grapes Trebbiano, Sauv Blanc, Grechetto, Verdelho
Colour White
Origin Italy, Umbria
Classification Classico Superiore
ABV 14%

This gorgeous Orvieto spends about 4-5 months on the lees. is a blend of 4 grapes - Trebbiano Toscano, Grechetto, Verdelho and Sauvignon Blanc - each adding extra depth, fruit and texture - but perfectly melded in to a gorgeous, pithy wine - fresh but with good weight. This is a wonderful aperativo with some nibbles or a perfect lunchtime white that will bring Italian summer straight to mind. 2019 is our second vintage of this jolly white - and is a very satisfying step up from last year. All the great character but delivered with more lift and ping. Bravo! L&S (Jun 2020)

Trebbiano Toscano (Procanico), Grechetto, Verdello, Sauvignon Blanc A delicate bouquet of young peach and wet stone is nicely contracted by hints of sour citrus as the 2019 Orvieto Classico Superiore opens up in the glass. Ripe orchard fruits give way to a perfumed display of honeyed inner florals toward the close. While a bit short, this tapers off fully satisfying with a twang of salty minerality.
