Slipper Sigma Theta Cozy Sorority Sizes Various Delta Wine Producer
The estate was established by chance at the end of 1968 when Giovanni Dubini’s father arrived at Palazzone with some friends, fell in love with the place and bought the property.
Delta Sorority Sizes Cozy Slipper Theta Sigma Various 18 hectares of vineyards, within the appellation of Orvieto Classico DOC, were planted between 1971 and 1976 In the beginning the grapes were sold, Palazzone then became an associate with the Cantina Sociale of Orvieto (of which Giovanni’s father was president for a few years). The estate was run by a bailiff till 1978 when Giovanni became the manager. A small cellar was built: the old cowshed was renovated and equipped with two vats and with a press. A part of the grapes was sold and a part vinified and the wine bottled. The first vintage to be released was 1982. Giovanni’s father passed away in 1984, Giovanni and Lodovico inherited the property and decided to vinify the whole grape production and to build a new cellar. Between 1992 and 1999 other 6 hectares of vineyards were planted and, starting in 2000, the first vineyards planted in 1971 were replanted. At present the total vineyard extension is 24 hectares of which 21.5 hectares, all within the Orvieto Classico DOC appellation, are grown with white varietals. 3 hectares are still the original ones planted in 1971. At the end of the 1990s, 2.5 hectares of red varietals were planted - mainly Sangiovese, then Cabernet Sauvignon and a little Merlot.
Low Sneaker Converse All Chuck Top Star Leather White Taylor xgq1A0qwX The estate of Palazzone (located in the district of Rocca Ripesena) is within the Orvieto Classico DOC zone. It is an area which is particularly suitable for viticulture and its soils are deep, clayey and of sedimentary origin. The altitude of the hills is between 260 and 360 meters above sea level, the exposure is north-east which makes it a cool zone. This zone is very protected and has a unique microclimate, there are many springs in the woods so that there is always a good water supply and there are no droughts.
The cellar for vinification, fermentation, bottling and storage has a surface of 600 square meters and the wines were vinified in it for the first time in 1988. An additional part of the cellar, the surface of which is 250 square meters, is used for ageing in wood and finishing in the bottle.
The lovely Orvieto Classico wines of Palazzone are a modern interpretation of the traditional whites, they acquire complexity with age and are still wonderful after many years in the cellar. The estate also offers four proprietary/IGT whites and three proprietary/IGT reds.
