Falesco Grechetto Dell Umbria 2013, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: White

Featured in: Episode 11

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

If you’ve not heard of Grechetto, remember that name. It’s the ‘interesting’ part of Orvieto, but was diluted out by other less distinguished grapes. Now it’s getting the spotlight for its nutty, ripe citrus and floral notes. Great with richer white meat pasta dishes and flavoursome paella, it has more interest than much Chardonnay, more food friendly character than Sauvignon or Pinot Grigio.
