By law, white Orvieto Classico wines must contain at least 60 percent trebbiano and grechetto. For the 2012 Villa Barbi, Decugnano dei Barbi incorporates the bare minimum of trebbiano (just 10 percent) and fills out the balance (40 percent) with chardonnay. The addition of that French variety gives this Orvieto more body and fruitiness than is usual for this light, invigorating white. At the same time, this wine offers the brisk minerality that makes good Orvieto so appealing. Sure, there’s fruit (think pineapple and lemon), but it’s the combination of that fruit with a chalky freshness that sets this white apart.View all products by Decugano Dei BarbiCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
