New

Orvieto Amabiles are richer than the dry Secco wines and could be described as medium-dry. Don’t let this put you off as this is an ideal bar wine; gentle and soft on the palate with subtle peach and almond fruit and enough freshness to carry that enticing sweet edge. Made from a combination of Trebbiano Toscano (Procanico), Verdello, Grechetto, Malvasia and Drupeggio grapes.

Bigi’s first headquarters was in the former Franciscan monastery of La Trinità in Orvieto, but this was confiscated by the Italian state in 1870! Today they are based in their modern cellars at Ponte Giulio at the foot of the lofty walls of the old town.The winery with its avant-garde vinification equipment and collection of casks and barrels marries perfectly the modern technical production requirement with age-old tradition. Outside, Bigi own a large percentage of the region’s vineyards, over 130 hectares, including some of the best such as Torricella from which they make a single vineyard wine.Massimo Panattoni, Bigi’s winemaker, was born in Bolgheri, the cradle of Super Tuscan wines. If you ask him, he will admit he witnessed as a young boy the birth of a few renowned cult wines through his father’s involvement in the wine business. So, it is no surprise he became a winemaker driven by passion and with an out-of-the-box approach to oenology.

Perfect with fruit tarts, fresh fruits especially those without too much acidity (strawberries, peaches,pears) and also shellfish and fish in sauce, spicy cheeses.
