Decugnano Dei Barbi Villa Barbi Orvieto Classico D.O.C 2013, Italy
Here’s a good rule. For wines you remember from the 70’s and 80’s (Beaujolais, Orvieto, Soave, Vinho Verde) spend a bit more. Because often they’re phenomenal, classic wines that are hugely underrated. Like this fresh, tangy blend that brings together the warmth of Grechetto, the zing of Vermentino and a hint of Sauvignon zest. Lighter fish dishes are the way to go or grilled prawns.
