Orvieto Amabile DOC 2016

Amabile translates directly to English as “Amiable” and there is perhaps no better word in the English language to describe this charming and friendly white wine from the hills of Umbria. A blend of Grechetto and Procanico, La Carraia Orvieto Amabile matches playful aromas of ripe stone fruit with a light sense of sweetness that is equally enjoyable as an aperitif or alongside a dessert course.
