Grecante Grechetto, Colli Martani DOC
Wonderfully fresh and perfumed, the 2020 Grecante Grechetto lifts from the glass with a display of sweet white flowers, peach skins and raw almonds. It boasts silky, nearly glycerol-like textures, yet it remains lifted and spry throughout, as ripe tangerine and hints of candied lime soothe the senses. A buzz of residual acids and tart green apple lingers long as this tapers off to a flourish of salty minerals and spice. This Grecante really wows in the context of its price point.
It's a herbal, lemon-scented white with streaks of lime, gooseberry and tropical fruit. In the mouth it's intense with good acidity and spiky citrus flavours on the attack, tempered by a round, creamy palate. Minerally and herbal, it has mid-palate notes of gooseberry, peppery spice and yellow fruits leading to a long, fresh finish. Ideal with grilled seafood.
