A Grechetto of deep yellow colour with bouquet of yellow roses, lime trees, pears and exotic fruit.  Rich full bodied and satisfying finish.

Although it is believed to have its origins in Greece, as the name indicates, Grechetto has been grown in Italy for so long that it is now widely regarded as being native to Umbria. Since the late 20th Century, its reputation has significantly improved and Grechetto is now regarded as one of the finest white wine grapes in the region.

Food pairing:  fish and white meat dishes, ripe cheeses, also pumpkin-filled ravioli or almond cookies.

Just as with Montecivoli we have begun to convert ourselves to bio dynamic ideas. Donato has taken over the estate founded by his father Dante in 1956 and today his two daughters Laura and Federica are also involved in the family-run business. Bio since 1993 and grown to 80 hectares,  38 of which are cultivated as vineyard and the rest as orchard (kiwi).

The wines are produced in three vineyards, two within Castelli Romani Doc area and one located in Cori Doc area, all registered in the I.G.T. vineyard registry of Lazio. Red grape vines are cultivated in Borgo Montello (Le Ferriere), where the company’s cellar is also located, while almost all white grape vines are cultivated in Doganella di Ninfa, in Cori DOC area.   Should you fancy a trip to the area, a visit to the beautiful and world renowned Garden of Ninfa is an absolute must.

The production capacity per hectare is reduced thanks to the lack of any kind of forcing method.
The cellar is equipped with modern technology. All the tanks are in stainless steel with exchanger to control the temperature, fermenters aso in stainless steel with Bosio or submerged-cap method.
The press gently extracts the must (0.7 atm), it features a vacuum system and with the aid of inert gas (nitrogen), the grape marc is never in contact with air.

Their logo represents a wind pump, which as Laura explained, was part of the landscape as she grew up on the farm.  An affordable and necessary solution to the irrigation need of an area that may reach 37+ degrees centigrade in the summer.
