2019 Classico Superiore Tenuta di Salviano

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

This gorgeous Orvietto 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)
