Critic Notes: The Berganorio Orvieto is a subtle wine with a bright palate. It shows white flowers on the nose and light citrus notes in the mouth. Its neutral character means it can accompany a wide range of foods. A blend of 30% Trebbiano, 30% Grechetto, 20% Malvasia, 15% Verdello, and 5% Drupeggio. The estate has 103 hectares on the hill opposite the hill town of Orvieto. -winereview

My Notes: This wine had a deep nose that was fruity but not very specific. The taste was fruity and light but so acidic that I couldn’t detect any specific fruits

I did not have this with food.
