2013 Barberani Orvieto Luigi E Giovanna

Share on Facebook

Bright golden-tinged yellow. Lemony botrytis, white flowers and rose water on the enticing nose. Rich and ripe but with vibrant acid lift to the rich candied ginger, custard cream and white pepper flavors. Bigger-bodied than most Orvieto wines you will have tasted, but with an element of grace that gives this a light-on-its-feet quality. It’s a knockout wine that is extremely Alsace-like in its ripe, rich mouthfeel. It reminded me of an ideal blend of the 2008 and 2009 Luigi e Giovanna , though its refinement tips the scale toward the 2009. Not a problem, given that both of those are exceptional wines. This bottle was even better than the one I tried in a recent vertical of the Luigi e Giovanna Orvieto tasted earlier in the year and recently published on Vinous...92+ Vinous
