Orvieto Classico is an Italian white wine from Umbria, a small hilly region located in central Italy. Orvieto wine accounts for about 80% of Umbria’s wine production. Like other prestigious wine regions, Orvieto has a sub-region, the “Orvieto Classico” area, located around the city of Orvieto. Barbi Orvieto Classico 2013 is produced exclusively with the highest quality grapes grown in this sub-region.
