Cantine Neri's Ca'Viti Orvieto sets the stage for earth and richness in a way that no white wine can boast. Mulch and wet leaves give way to tobacco and apples left on a window seal. A sudden sunrise of fruit appears on the first sip. A basket of fresh picked pears steals the show and leads the palate into a field of flowers. Less than a third of Chardonnay leaves this wine with a perfect finish that will last in taste, smell and thought.
