Ep. 1115 Giulia Di Cosimo | On The Road With Stevie Kim

Welcome to episode 1115, another installment of ‘On The Road Edition’, hosted by Stevie Kim. Today Stevie is with Giulia di Cosimo of Argillae Winery, she is the new Vice-President of the Orvieto Consortium. Together they discuss “Benvenuto Orvieto” a day of events that introduces the new Vintages as well as a masterclass on Orvieto DOC.

More about “Benvenuto Orvieto”:
The location (the Mancinelli theatre, in the city center), for the “ Benvenuto Orvieto 2022 ” event was chosen by the Orvieto Wine Consortium. It was an intense day, made up of territory, history and tastings. The day started in the theater with the presentation of the Consortium and its objectives. A DOC created in 1971; today it has 1956 hectares of vineyards and a production of 11 million bottles . It is a wine-growing area that starts in the north from the parts of Fabro and extends towards the province of Terni, even encroaching into Lazio. On the other hand, the area relating to the “Orvieto Classico ” appellation is more restricted .

The day had a full program of events and promotional activities and included an experimental program with the University of Tuscia that began with a study on the four terroirs of Orvieto, volcanic, clayey, sandy, alluvial. Four terroirs that were the subject of the first tasting, with an “anonymous” label which took place in the Theater.

To complete the day, there was an interesting speech by Prof. Attilio Scienza on the close relationship between the evolution of viticulture and the Via Francigena and, finally, on the potential of the “sweet wines ” of Orvieto; also because the presence of “noble rot” in the Orvieto area could be thought of as a real icing on the cake….
