The Bigi winery began life in a former Franciscan monastery, the ancient La Trinità in Orvieto, which had been confiscated by the Italian government in 1870. To improve production methods, in 1972 Bigi moved to the modern cellars in Ponte Giulio, a district not far from old Orvieto. The winery’s own 136 hectares under vine are located in the “classic” area, the oldest DOC Orvieto district, with 70% given over to white berries, and located on hilly terrain of altitudes between 150 and 450 metres, basically all clay.

Orvieto Amabiles are richer than the dry Secco wines and could be described as medium-dry. Gentle and soft on the palate with subtle peach and almond fruit and enough freshness to carry that enticing sweet edge.
