For years this interesting, slightly nutty grape has been hidden in the traditional Orvieto blend. But now people want to let it sing on its own. It’s taken some work as this is a full-flavoured variety and with a slightly bitter twist at the end, but that actually makes it a perfect food-matching variety. Keep the food simple, but go with roast chicken or firm-fleshed fish.
