    Winemaker Notes

    Goretti Winery has been known for decades as the gathering place for locals to meet over a glass of wine and enjoy the stunning Perugia skyline, the muse for our label. This Grechetto, an indigenous white grape from Umbria, is a delightfully young and lively white wine. When the wine is chilled to the optimal tempurature the Goretti name on the label will turn pink. The color is deep and elegant with fruit notes of pineapple, banana, yellow peach, scotch brook flowers and almonds. Fresh and full flavored, well balanced, rich and velvety with a marked finesse and personality.

    Goretti, Italy
    Goretti Winery Image
    The Goretti winery has been handed down from father to son, a tradition that fully reflects the Umbrian practice of conducting and maintaining family businesses and is now in the 4th generation. Le Mura Saracene is an ancient ruin located steps away from the Goretti winery and the inspiration for this label. The imperfect stone blocks, once a protective city wall, are depicted with the vibrant colors of the ancient Saracene robes.

    Producing every style of wine and with great success, the Veneto is one of the most multi-faceted wine regions of Italy.

    Veneto's appellation called Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of the region’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Amarone, a dry red, and Recioto, a sweet wine, follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing. The drying process results in intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral wines.

    Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, yellow peach, melon or orange zest and have smoky and floral aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

    Grechetto, the region’s star white variety, produces Umbria’s best crsip and tactile white wines,. Whether on its own or as part of a blend, this grape has elevated the general quality of whites throughout this central, land-locked Italian region. Producers tend to favor its use in the native Orvieto white wine, a dynamic blend composed of varying percentages of Trebbiano, Grechetto, Verdello and Canaiolo Bianco, to name a few. Somm Secret—Many famous Sagrantino producers from Montefalco also produce single varietal Grechettos from the adjacent, Colli Martani DOC.
