Grechetto from Sergio Mottura


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.
