Tenuta di Salviano

Grechetto IGT 2020

Region: Italy / Umbria
Grapes: 100% Grechetto

Tenuta di Salviano was purchased by the Principe Corsini family in the late 17th century. The property has Ethruscan 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.

harvest note

Harvest set to occur during the third week of September. The skins are thinning a bit more slowly this vintage due to the lower harvest temperatures and lack of rain. However, the flavors and acidity is becoming more complex with the time.

tasting note

100% Grechetto. 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. (This is a general tasting note for our Grechetto since the 2019 harvest has not yet occurred.)

food pairing

Can be drank as an aperitif but its structure and minerality also pair nicely with salads, seafood and white meat dishes.
