Additional Information on La Carraia Orvieto Classico 2013

Winery: La Carraia

Varietal: Trebbiano

Trebbiano grapes have been used for wine production for at least a thousand years in their native home of Italy. It is known that they were introduced to France in the fourteenth century, where they became wildly popular all throughout the country in medieval times. Today, cultivation of Trebbiano grapes is smaller, and they are primarily used for making fortified wines and as a blending grape due to their high acidity and aromatic qualities. However, in Tuscany and elsewhere in the world, wineries are making extremely high quality single variety white wines with the Trebbiano grape, and making the most of its delightful acidity and excellent citrus fruit flavors Trebbiano is also prized by wine makers due to the fact that it is very good at expressing the terroir it is grown in, often resulting in surprising and complex wines.

Region: Umbria

The beautiful central Italian region of Umbria may well be a fraction of the size of neighboring Tuscany, but still manages to impress and surprise the international wine community with their outstanding produce and the volume they make it in, with the region turning out over twenty five million gallons of wine per year. However, Umbrian wine makers have been exceptionally keen to emphasize the fact that they are primarily concerned with creating quality, characterful and unique Italian wines, often made from blends of native varietals, with imported Bordeaux grapes. In particular, the aged white wines of Umbria, made from Chardonnay and Grechetto grapes, have proven to be a huge success internationally, demonstrating how this particular region is ready to blend traditional practices with innovation and the pursuit of perfection when it comes to making wines.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
