About The Wine

Le Velette’s Rasenna wine 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 originates with one of the first known cultures of the area – the Etruscans. It generally means ‘the people’, as in reference to the Etruscans.

Tasting Notes

Le Velette’s Rasenna is the result of centuries of devotion, selection and experience.

For centuries Orvieto wine was slightly sweet, a condition sought and obtained through forced maturation of the grapes and vinification in the cool cellars carved out of the tufa rock and Rasenna continues this tradition.

The straw yellow colour is intense, the flavours are those of mature fruits, sweet and rich. The satisfying acidity on the palate is accompanied by a soft sweet sensation, which smooths it and gives it roundness and fullness.

Food Pairing

Rasenna is an excellent accompaniment for delicate or structured first courses as well with soft and semi-matured cheeses. Rasenna is also very good as a dessert wine especially with fruit tarts and the traditional crunchy biscuits and cakes.
