2016 Bigi Orvieto Classico

September 28, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#37-18-PIE

The highlight of our dinner last night was the Frutti de Mar Fettuccine, which is one of my most favorite dishes in the world. In addition to fettuccine, there is a variety of fish, plus clams, mussels, shrimp, and scallops. And, of course, the meal was served at my favorite "Little Italian Place". We also enjoyed a bottle of 2016 Bigi Orvieto with our feast.

The Bigi Orvieto is a classic style from Umbria which appeals to the senses with a delicate bouquet of wild flowers and a fruit basket of fragrant scents. The flavor is light, clean and crisp, with the presence of peach enveloped in a citrus breeze, backed by the taste of melon and a hint of almonds. This is a great wine for seafood and can be had for a modest price. The alcohol content is 12.5%, and Norm's score is 88.

The "Little Italian Place" is Moretti's Italian Grill in Cape Coral, Florida, where the seafood and pasta are always the best in town. The Bigi Orvieto is a house standard offering and pairs well with almost every dish on the menu which calls for a white wine.

price : $11 - $15

score: 88
