Grechetto from Sergio Mottura

WP_20140402_014

We are not exactly in Umbria but very closed to it! Sergio Mottura, organic grower and winemaker from Civiletta D’Agliano near Viterbo in Lazio, is known for a unique clone of Grechetto, which takes his name. Grechetto is an important grape variety for Orvieto Classico blend: thick skin rich of bloom, early flowering, mid-late ripening. It offers wines of great texture, famous for the nutty finish and the ability to last in time. I personally adore Grechetto: it’s unique, deep, away from the stereotype aromas, it is a good mediator of the soil, full of character frankly similar to none.
