    Item no. 123831

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grechetto is a white grape variety (presumably of Greek origin) that is widely planted in central Italy, but especially in Umbria. Mostly used as an ingredient in Orvieto, it is now also very often made as a varietal wine full of character.

    Dark straw yellow color.Intense and forward nose with almond and mineral notes Sense-warming and harmonious tasting experience dovetails perfectly into the aftertaste sensations released by the terroir

    Critical Acclaim:

    This wine's fresh floral nectarine flavors do exactly what grechetto should, presenting light fleshiness in a brisk white. A touch of fruit-skin bitterness in the end will match with a calamari steak

    Argillae's 2011 Grechetto impresses for its vibrant fruit and sheer personality. Sweet, floral-infused white peaches and crushed rocks seem to jump from the glass in this beautiful, delineated Umbrian white. All the elements are in place for the 2011 to drink well for the next few years. I very much like the sense of energy and salinity here.
