Europe > Italia > Orvieto



Orvieto is a white wine made in the Italian provinces of Terni and Viterbo. It was granted its DOC status on 7 August 1971 and must have an alcohol content of at least 11.5%, or 12% to bear the designation superiore. Orvieto is made with 40-60% Trebbiano Toscano, 15-25% Verdello and not more than 20% of Grechetto, Canaiolo Bianco or Malvasia Toscana. The wine may also be called classico if it was made from grapes grown in the older, smaller version of this appellation.
