  • Grecante Grechetto, Colli Martani DOC – 2016 -91 points – James Suckling

    “A dense white with a lightly chewy texture and lots of dried apple and pear character. Full body. Flavorful and beautiful. Tangy acidity at the end.”

    "...This white combines freshness with an intriguing subtle nuttiness. Good density and vivacity makes it a perfect choice with linguine and clam sauce or other flavor-packed seafood dish."
