Overview

The Orvieto DOC appellation received official recognition in the 1971 and, over the past forty years, has experienced an extraordinary growth both in terms of volume of production and of overall quality levels. Today Orvieto is, on a worldwide basis, one of Italy’s best known white wines and, on its own, accounts for approximately three fourths of the appellation wine produced in the Umbria region. The appellation area is subdivided into first, Orvieto Classico, the classic area around the city of Orvieto – perched high on a bluff – sits and then, second, into Orvieto, which fills out the appellation territory to the north and south. The geological components of the production zone – of volcanic origin – and the micro-climate created by the valleys of the Paglia and lower Tiber rivers are the basis of the oenological fortunes which, since time immemorial, have made Orvieto and wine a synonymous whole. It is no accident that Orvieto is one of the few cities in the entire world whose name coincides with both a wine and a 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.
