A blend 40% Grechetto, 20% Procanico, 40% other white varietals (Verdello, Canaiolo Bianco), Ruffino Orvieto Classico is a straw yellow in the glass. The nose is fresh and fragrant, with delicate flowery notes of meadow flowers and clover accompanied by fruity hints of green apples and citrus.

The palate offers an off-dry sweetness and a light-to-medium body. Fresh and lively flavors of citrus fruits, pears, and ripe apples are underscored by a hint of wild flowers, along with a pleasing minerality, and a crisp acidity. The finale has a lingering aftertaste fresh almonds and faint citrus.

Overall, Ruffino Orvieto Classico is a well-balanced, refreshing, and extremely versatile wine. Perfect to sip on a warm day, as an aperitif, as the perfect ending to a meal, or alongside a variety of dishes such as salads, sautéed scallops, grilled shrimp, white pizza w/clams, flounder in butter sauce. Spicy dishes like avocado guacamole, shrimp or chicken enchiladas, and chicken tikka masala are also delicious with this easy-drinking, crowd-pleasing Italian white.
