Le Velette Orvieto Classico Secco Berganorio
Tenuta le Velette
Italy - Umbria - Orvieto DOC

The result of centuries of devotion, selection and experience, this wine is the taste portrait of this area: cool as the air on the Orvieto rock, soft as the surrounding hills, direct/candid/plain/frank/open and sincere like the local people. Brilliant, pale straw-color with emerald reflections. The bouquet is ntense and filled with fresh fruit and floral nuances. In the palate, complex nuances of lemon, lime and apricots with a beguiling roundness and a fruity finish with a touch of bitter almond.

Origin of the name: A tribute to the three families of workers who were responsible for the farms on this hillside from the early 19th century and who have cultivated the grape varieties of Orvieto D.O.C. for generations.
