Appearance: Bright straw yellow. Aroma: Orvieto's fruity and floral bouquet is reminiscent of green apples and meadow flowers. Tasting profile: This wine's smooth, refreshing flavors balance beautifully with its structure and acidity. Orvieto also offers a unique mineral character that comes from the chalky limestone soil called tufa. The finish is long and fragrant, with hints of almond.
Pairings: 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 puree with a light truffle oil infusion; grilled fish with olive oil and rosemary; and mild cheeses such as mozzarella.
It’s an excellent white wine. Not sweet , great with shrimp scampi
