Tenute Murola Classic Winery Marche Grechetto 2014
Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.
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.
