orvieto italy

Orvieto is a town in the Province of Terni in Umbria. The site is among the most dramatic in Europe, rising above the almost-vertical faces of tuff cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone. The ancient city, populated since Etruscan times, has been associated with Etruscan Velzna, but some modern scholars disagree. Orvieto was certainly a major center of Etruscan civilization; the archaeological museum houses some of the Etruscan artifacts that have been recovered in the immediate neighborhood.

2015 Lecciaia Orvieto Classico

It’s hard to have an Orvieto Classico outside of Orvieto, but I tried. Lemon, apple, and pear on the nose with a hint of florals. The standard lemon, apple, and pear on the palate. Not much else. I had my hoomans cook with it but it is a simple drinker - no harm in having a glass while you cook with the rest!
