Orvieto Classico - Orvieto Classico DOC - Orvieto White Wine Ruffino

Orvieto Classico DOC

Orvieto Classico

The story

This wine has always been benefited from the tuff rock on which Orvieto was built. The low and constant temperatures of the cellars carved into the soil facilitate long fermentation and the creation of quality wines.

Winemaking notes

The grapes are destemmed and chilled before being pressed gently. The fermentation and refinement takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.


Almost transparent straw yellow, with grey highlights.


Delicate aromas of wild flowers and fruit, including apples and yellow peaches.

Tasting profile

Dry and well integrated on the palate with a vigorous structure and upbeat finish, in which the freshness is underpinned by sobering acidity.

Full tasting Notes

As a tribute to the character of the appellation, this wine enjoys company but also has a serious side that is seen in its composure.

Food pairings

Cured meats, cold meat dishes, raw shellfish and grilled fish. Raw vegetables.

Did you know?

Luca Signorelli, the artist who painted the Last Judgment frescoes in Orvieto Cathedral in the 1400s, was paid with 265 gallons of wine, while Pope Gregory XVI actually left instructions in his will that he should be washed in “vin d’Orvieto” before being buried. Gabriele D’Annunzio called Orvieto wine “the sun of Italy in a bottle”. Wine from Orvieto not only has a glorious past, but also a great present.
