2014 Bigi Orvieto Classico

August 25, 2016 - Norman Bentley

The other night we were celebrating being back in Paradise at our "Little Cottage by the Sea", so we went to our favorite "Little Italian Place", Moretti's Italian Grill in Cape Coral, Florida. We have always had great meals there, and this time may have been the best ever. We gorged on Italian Pasta and seafood and washed it all down with a most pleasant bottle of Orvieto Classico, which we had not had before, but which we will not soon forget! The "Chardonnay Queen" indulged in Shrimp and Scallops in a white wine and garlic sauce which was stupendous, while I feasted on Fettuccini Frutti de Mar, which was more like Bouillabaisse than pasta and shellfish. We paired this with the 2014 Bigi Orvieto Classico for a terrific evening, which was capped off with the best cup of Cappuccino I have had in ages. What a celebration, and it was only a Wednesday night in paradise!

The Bigi Orvieto is a classic style from Umbria which assaults the senses with a bouquet broadcasting wild flowers and and tones of honeysuckle, surrounding a fruit basket of fragrant scents. The flavor is clean and crisp, with the presence of peach enveloped in a citrus breeze, backed by the taste of golden apples and a hint of pear. This is a great wine for seafood and can be had for a modest price. Norm's score is 89.

We have been huge fans of the culinary talents of Mr. Moretti for years, and our latest venture into his establishment in Cape Coral left us eager to come back soon. If you are visiting Southwest Florida anytime in the future, don't miss the opportunity for one of the best Italian meals of your life!
