Ruffino Orvieto Classico 2013
Save $6.00 (35%)
Orvieto's fruity and floral bouquet is reminiscent of green apples and meadow flowers. Its smooth, refreshing flavors balance beautifully with the wine's structure and acidity. Orvieto also offers a unique mineral character that comes from the chalky and white limestone soil called 'tufa.' This wine ends with a long, fragrant finish with hints of almond. Serve Ruffino Orvieto Classico as an aperitif. Or pair it with a wide variety of dishes including crostini topped by roasted tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and garnished with shaved parmigiano cheese; lightly grilled vegetables infused with fennel; thinly sliced prosciutto garnished with basil and olive oil; basic soups such as cold summer squash purée with a light truffle oil infusion; grilled fish with olive oil and rosemary; and mild cheeses such as mozzarella.
