In the heart of the historic old zone of Orvieto Classico lies the Decugnano dei Barbi estate, truly an outpost of ancient wine making tradition guided by the latest in modern technology. Cultivated since Etruscan times, the regionís soils are rich in fossil shells, sand and clay, giving the wines a strong mineral character. At altitudes in excess of 300 meters above sea level, patriarch Enzo Barbiís south-facing vineyards enjoy perfect ventilation and a wide temperature range. The wine, which is a stainless steel fermented blend of Grachetto, Procanico (Trebbiano), Vermentino and Sauvignon Blanc, is highly aromatic with aromas of citrus, white peaches and a hint of almonds. On the palate, it displays excellent balance: round yet clean, with bright acidity, minerality and a slight bitter almond note on the finish. This is classic Orvieto elevated to new heights. Outstanding on its own as an aperitif, try it with some of summerís lighter fare.
