This wine is of an intense straw color. It has an elegant nose that gradually releases a vivid and definite perfume of the white fruit from which it is made. In the mouth the impact is dense and dry and these two sensations balance each other so that the perfume is matched by a somewhat dry finish.

This refreshing white is bursting with fragrance and pairs with just about anything! One of our favorite summertime whites for under $10. This Orvieto is made from the time-honored blend of Orvieto: 40% Procanico, 40% Grechetto and 20% Verdello. This wine is light-bodied, crisp, slightly fruity and wonderfully refreshing with a delicate straw-yellow color and enticing bouquet. Delightful with simple fish and shellfish dishes, it is also perfect just sippin' by the glass!
Wine maker notes
Our years of experience have enabled us to choose a specific portion of our Palazzone vineyard for the production of this wine. It has a perfect aspect and we carry out careful pruning to leave the best possible bunches of the Procanico and Grechetto grapes with which to make our Terre Vineate. The name comes from the medieval quarter in which our vineyard is situated.

Food pairing
This wine is best suited to rich dishes that include sauces of meat or fish and it also goes well with spicy dishes.

Producer
In 1969 the Dubini family bought the property “Palazzone”, constructed by Cardinal Teodorico at the bidding of Pope Boniface VIII as a hostel for pilgrims on their way to Rome to celebrate the Jubilee of 1300 A.D. Today after a restoration with respect for the noble architecture, “Palazzone” is a boutique hotel with elegant suites. The hilly portion of the land adjacent to Rocca Ripesena, with its superb view of Orvieto on its majestic crag, consisted of sedimentary soil and clay. Angelo Dubini decided to plant 25 hectares to vines of varieties that he expected would make wine of great complexity and character. In 1982 his two sons, Giovanni and Lodovico, made the first small vintage from these grapes. In1988 their vintage was sufficient to justify the construction of a winery to process all their own grapes and also to organise and begin the commercial marketing of what is now “Palazzone” wine regarded as one of the most significant labels in Umbria.
