White Wine of Ageing
To this ancient grape vine, we have dedicated 0,8 hectare of hillside land, exposure North/East. The grapes are harvested and selected by hand and the soft pressing of the pomace is followed by a slow, temperature controlled fermentation at 18 °C. The wine matures in small stainless steel vats and it is bottled just before the following harvest. After the bottling, the Grechello matures in our tufa soil caves, at the naturally constant temperature of 15 °C for a further six months prior to release. The Grechello has a bright pale straw colour that develops to a more golden tinge with age. It has a gentle spicy nose, a clean ripe middle palate and a lingering, lightly minerally flavour on the finish. Serve lightly chilled with cold starters, white meats, salads and tasty fish dishes.
