Grechetto IGT 2018
Grapes: 100% Grechetto
Tenuta di Salviano was purchased by the Principe Corsini family in the late 17th century. The property has Etruscan and Roman descent, in fact the main house on Salviano was a Roman villa and somewhere on the estate is a necropolis. Donna Nerina Corsini married Il Marchese Enrico Incisa della Rocchetta, and their two children Giovanni and Eleonora are now the owners of Tenuta di Salviano. Il Marchese Giovanni Incisa della Rocchetta manages the estate and oversees the winemaking with his wife, La Marchesa Tara.
A moderately rainy and cool spring which delayed flowering slightly, followed by a balanced start to summer with occasional high temperatures in July and August. Early September has been enjoying cool nights with occasional rain showers.
Bright and refreshing with aromas of white flowers and flavors of tropical fruit. There is also a strong, but pleasant mineral component that is very evident on the palate providing complexity and mouth feel.
A soft, easy drinking white that pairs well with pizza and pasta dishes. Also with meats like a grilled steak and pork.
