2017 Ruffino Orvieto Classico

March 22, 2019 - Norman Bentley
#12-19-PIE

The latest vintage for Ruffino Orvieto Classico is both fruity and delicious, and may be one of the better years in the last decade. Always a good choice for light fare, and "back porch sipping", the 2017 Orvieto is a good companion for almost any occasion. This beautiful wine represents the beautiful landscape of Umbria, Italy where it hails from.

The nose is bright and floral. The big fruit flavors swirling in the glass, suggest green apple, melon and a light citrus breeze, before flowing into a crisp, clean finish. The alcohol content is 12%, and Norm's score is 90.

We enjoyed the Orvieto with Scallops Alfredo over linguine and a fresh salad of tomato and avocado. Come summertime, you will want this one out on the back porch with you.

score: 90

price: $8 - $11
