Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% You’ve heard of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling - but have you ever heard of Grechetto? Mmmm...It\'s time to try this incredibly refreshing white wine with its distinctive herbal and nutty flavours. One sip won\'t be enough!
Although Grechetto is a white grape variety that may well have originated in Greece, it is mostly known as a native of Umbria in central Italy. The Grechetto grape is low-yielding variety with a thick skin that in the past has only been used as part of a blend, but more recently has been growing in reputation as a stand-alone variety in its own right. It can also be used as an ingredient of Tuscany\'s iconic dessert wine Vin Santo, sitting alongside varieties such as Trebbiano and Malvasia. Best food pairing: ideal with fish, cheese or cured meat starters and pasta dishes. Excellent with boiled meat, pit-aged cheese ‘di fossa’ and chocolate. Or try with typical Umbria dishes like: cheese loaf with salami and cured pork, royal perch fillets from Lake Trasimeno.
Savoury mineral sensations blend perfectly with toasty and citric notes.
The name Cervaro comes from the noble family that owned Castello della Sala during the 14th century, Monaldeschi della Cervara. A blend of Chardonnay grapes and a small quantity of Grechetto make a wine that can age over time and represent the elegance and complexity of this unique estate. Cervaro della Sala is one of the first Italian wines to have malolactic fermentation and aging take place in barriques. The first vintage of Cervaro to be produced was the 1985 vintage.
A straw yellow wine with slight greenish reflections. Pear and peach scents with citrus notes, it is fragrant and fresh with an almond-like finish. Dry, elegant and with a solid structure.
The name "Torre di Giano" recalls the Roman origins of Torgiano, testified by the tower dedicated to Janus (Giano) the double-headed god. Produced exclusively with free-run juice, after brief cryomaceration, it is vinified in stainless steel at low temperature. Kept on the fine lees until bottling and at low temperature during the entire process.
