Grechetto (Greh-ketto)
90 Points Wine Spectator

Grechetto is the star white grape variety of the Umbrian region and is a great Italian alternative for Pinot Grigio and unoaked Chardonnay. There are also a lot of similarities between this wine and Provence Rosé. In fact if you closed your eyes you might confuse this white wine with a rosé due to the citrus, crushed seashell, and strawberry notes.

This Grechetto is made from hand harvested grapes usually picked in early September and made in stainless steel tanks to maintain a clean crisp style of wine. The label is very unique in the sense that portions of it will turn bright pink when the wine is chilled to drinking temperature. This is a wine to enjoy everyday on its own or with food. It pairs well with soups, creamy pasta dishes, fish, chicken, salads, goat cheese, brie, and mozzarella.

The Goretti winery is currently operated by its 3rd generation. The estate is located in the hilly area outside of Perugia, Umbria and features a 14th century tower that has become the emblem of Goretti. Their belief is that the quality of the wines is never the result of improvisation, but of a deep knowledge of land, climate, and production processes.
