    Winemaker Notes

    Goretti Winery has been known for decades as the gathering place for locals to meet over a glass of wine and enjoy the stunning Perugia skyline, the muse for our label. This Grechetto, an indigenous white grape from Umbria, is a delightfully young and lively white wine. When the wine is chilled to the optimal tempurature the Goretti name on the label will turn pink. The color is deep and elegant with fruit notes of pineapple, banana, yellow peach, scotch brook flowers and almonds. Fresh and full flavored, well balanced, rich and velvety with a marked finesse and personality.

    Goretti, Veneto, Italy
    Image of winery
    The Goretti winery has been handed down from father to son, a tradition that fully reflects the Umbrian practice of conducting and maintaining family businesses and is now in the 4th generation. Le Mura Saracene is an ancient ruin located steps away from the Goretti winery and the inspiration for this label. The imperfect stone blocks, once a protective city wall, are depicted with the vibrant colors of the ancient Saracene robes.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

    Grechetto

    View all wine

    Producing Umbria’s best snappy and tactile white wines, Grechetto is the region’s star white variety. Whether on its own or as part of a blend, this grape has elevated the quality of the whites throughout this central, land-locked Italian region. Producers have tended to favor its use in the native Orvieto white wine, a dynamic blend composed of varying percentages of Trebbiano, Grechetto, Verdello and Canaiolo bianco, to name a few. Its ability to add texture and penetrating aromas have made it quite popular as of late.

    Many of the producers famous for their Sagrantino-based red wines from Montefalco also produce single varietal Grechettos from the adjacent Colli Martani DOC. These wines are expressive of chamomile, white flowers, smoke, mint and fennel and have juicy lemon, green apple and stone fruit flavors.

    Grechetto is an excellent alternative to an unoaked Chardonnay or Pinot grigio!
