Umbria – Grechetto
Umbria Grechetto is a fresh and young wine made from the Grechetto grapes typical of the region.
After a soft-mid pressing, the must is cooled at around 14 °C. Grechetto is the region’s most typical wine, and with Umbria Grechetto we wanted to exalt its inherently fresh and sapid characteristics.
Ideally served with appetisers, young and soft cheeses, non-tomato based pasta dishes, and grilled fish. Serve at 12 °C.
