Winephabet Street; O is for Orvieto

September 3, 2018

Orvieto is an Italian wine region located in Umbria and Lazio. It is primarily known for its white wines made from a blend of mostly Grechetto and Trebbiano, which is sold under the Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) Orvieto and Orvieto Classico. Blended red wine and eight varietal reds are sold under the Rosso Orvietano DOC.

The Orvieto zone is in the province of Terni in the south-western corner of Umbria. It extends southward into the Viterbo province of Lazio and north to the border between Terni and the province of Perugia. The Orvieto Classico region is characterised by tufa (a variety of limestone formed when carbonate minerals), limestone and volcanic soil.
