As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

I love Orvieto, but I have to say, I’m loving what Orvieto producers are doing more. Here is a blend between the structure and citrus core of Chardonnay with the nutty, rich character of Grechetto, the ‘Greek’ variety local to the area. It’s adventurous and distinctive. That white peach fruit also makes for a great food wine, something to have outdoors in the summer, perhaps with a well-grilled piece of fish.
