Discussion on Orvieto

gja1686 :

I recently had a white wine at a resturant in Chicago called Big Bowl and can't seem to find a place to buy it. The wine was simply called Orvieto it was a sweet wine and I believe it was under riesling on their menu. From what i remember on the menu it gave description of having a sour apple blend or something like that. I am aware of the fact that Orvieto is region in Italy the produces wine however Im not sure if it came from there or was just named after it. Anyways any help finding out where to buy this wine would be much appreciated. Thanks

Pinguino :
"Orvieto is a city in province of Terni, in the Region of Umbria; the wine named Orvieto is from there an is a DOC (Denominazione di Origine Protetta); that means it can be produced only there (actually in the province of Orvieto and Viterbo)."

"Orvieto Chicken servings [Reset] Keys : Umbrian Poultry Ingredients : 1x11/2 kg free range or corn-fed chicken, (11/2 to 2) Extra virgin olive oil 500gmChicken livers, cleaned 2lrgPotatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm discs 1lrgBunc leaf or feather fennel 18xBlack olives, stoned Salt and pepper 48lrgFresh garlic cloves in their skins 50mlDry white wine 500mlChicken stock Method : * You will need an oval roasting dish slightly bigger than the chicken, one smallish gratin dish for square stuffing, and a frying pan. * The stuffing takes a minimum of 1 hour, including cooling time and it is best done in advance. Put 4 tablespoons of olive oil to heat over a medium flame in the frying pan, add the livers and stir until coloured. Then add the diced potatoes, and cook until they are tender (you may need to add more oil, as the potatoes may stick, but if they do, don't worry, simply scrape the crispy bits into the mixture). It is important that the potatoes are fully cooked. Coarsely chop the fennel and add to the potatoes with half the olives. Mix thoroughly, season with salt and pepper, and set aside to cool. * Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas 6. Spoon the cool stuffing into the chicken. You will have quite a lot left. Rub the chicken all over with the olive oil, and season very generously. Put the remaining stuffing in a suitable size gratin dish with a little olive oil and set aside. Put the chicken on its side into the casserole, and roast in the oven for 20 minutes, uncovered. It should be spitting and generally furious by this time. Gingerly turn the chicken onto the other side and give it 20 minutes more. Turn down the oven to 180C/360F/gas 4 if it is browning too much. Put the excess stuffing into the oven to roast. Add the garlic cloves to the casserole and turn the chicken breast side down - for 20 minutes, and throw in the remaining black olives. * Remove the fowl from the casserole to the chopping board and let it rest. * Keep the garlic and olives warm in a dish. Remove any excess fat from the casserole. Add the wine to the casserole and boil vigorously until nearly evaporated. Add the broth and reduce by three quarters. This whole process should take 10 minutes. Cut the chickens into eighths, and arrange on a heated serving platter around the scooped out stuffing. Scatter more chopped fennel, the olives and garlic on top and serve with extra stuffing."

Uòlter ci ha provato. E’ andato alla festa di Sinistra Democratica, ad Orvieto, per convincere Mussi ed i suoi a ripensarci. L’aveva già detto a Firenze e, forte della sua fama di affabulatore, si è sentito in dovere di provarci.

Renowned Orivetano Chef Lorenzo Polegri talks about his style of "modern rustic cooking" and the area's culinary treasures including local sheep's milk cheeses, Orvieto wines, handmade pasta & cured meats.

Orvieto, Italy. A beautiful, but lonely picture of Italy. Whoever have been there, they are lucky. I want to go there at least once. However, my Italian friends say, "It's alright." I think they are just used to their environments.
