Berganorio: Orvieto D.O.C. Classico Secco
About The Wine
Berganorio is a unique white blend with Trebbiano (30%), Grechetto (30%) and Malvasia (20%), all of which are grapes that are native to Italy.
The name itself is an homage to the three families of workers who maintained the property in the early 19th century and even generations before that.
Le Velette’s Berganorio is 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 and sincere like the local people. The straw-yellow colour with greenish tints illustrates its youthfulness. On the palate, the Berganorio has delicate floral flavours with a light acidity to preserve them. There is a characteristic slightly bitter after-taste.
This wine is a joyful wine, sociable, rounded in its reliable simplicity and will always be a good accompaniment with lighter foods.
Berganorio is excellent as a pleasant, light-hearted aperitif and goes well with vegetable or fish hors d’oeuvres and first course meals in general.
