Assisi Grechetto DOC cellar Sportoletti
The vineyards are at an altitude of about 300 metres, about 15 years old, and are all situated within the DOC wine production area of Assisi. The soil is mainly shallow, of medium consistency, with a high level of skeletal deposits deriving from the dissolving of the calcareous rock of Mount Subasio.
Vinification: the grapes, transported immediately to the winery, were destalked and macerated for approximately 6 hours, before soft pressing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in thermal-conditioned stainless steel tanks, at a maximum temperature of 16°C. The wine is then refined in bottles for several months before being marketed.
Tasting notes: intense straw yellow, it expresses the delicate bouquet of jasmine, white peaches and Golden Delicious apples. It is warm and soft in the mouth, with mineral notes and a slightly mentholated finish.
Recommended for appetizers and main courses of fish and vegetables; grilled vegetables, seafood, white meats grilled.
A brief history: production of DOC Assisi started in 1997, confirming the wine producing vocation of the area, which was initially renowned for the production of extra virgin olive oil. Grechetto is one of the few indigenous varieties of the region, and has always been cultivated for the production of a structured and high quality wine.
The Sportoletti business has been producing 100% Grechetto since it was founded, proof of our passion for this unique grape.
