Overview

The Orvieto DOC appellation was given official recognition in the year 1971, and in the following four decades has had an exceptional growth both in terms of quality and of the quantities produced: Orvieto is, today, one of Italy’s most widely known white wines on a worldwide basis and represents, on its own, approximately three fourths of all the appellation wine produced in the Umbria region of Italy.

The appellation itself is divided into two parts: Orvieto Classico, produced in the area around the bluff of tufaceous rock on which the city of Orvieto is perched and Orvieto, from areas to the north and south of the classic zone. The geological components of the territory (of volcanic origin), together with favorable and quite individual micro-climates which distinguishes the area of the Paglia and lower Tiber rivers, are the basis of the oenological success which, since time immemorial, is an integral part of the history of the city. It is no accident that Orvieto is one of the very few cities of the world whose name is synonymous with that of the wine of its surrounding territory.

They have since led the charge of Chianti producers in establishing the image of great Chianti and have contributed significantly to the Renaissance of Italian wines. The majority of the Antinori vineyards are located in Chianti Classico, where all efforts are centred on viticulture, with the aim of achieving Antinori's objectives to maximise the undiscovered potential in winemaking whilst safeguarding the wealth of tradition, culture and taste which gives Antinori wines their true identity.
