Grechetto of Umbria is a dry wine that presents a range of vivacious scents, both in the aroma and the taste.
Sweet fruit, white and yellow flowers, with a fresh acidity keep the wine alive and persistent.
This native Umbrian varietal is vinified in the Scacciadiavoli.
At the right temperature it is the perfect accompaniment during hot summer days, as well as all year long with soups and pastas, or light main courses.
