Santa Cristina 2009 Campogrande Orvieto Classico White Blend $15 – $25

Apple peel, pear and lime juice notes, with great talc and granite minerality. Light and fresh, but rich fruits of apple and lime. Quite dry, with a hint of clay on the finish. A nice summer wine and a nice alternative to soave or pinot gris.

To the eye the wine introduces itself with a straw-yellow color with tinges of lime green. It hasĀ  full and fruity aromas which are reminiscent of pineapple and bananas, and exudes floral notes. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, luscious, and soft.
