“Podere Il Caio” Grechetto dell’Umbria IGT 2012. Restaurante Il Panciolle

This is a 100% pure Grechetto, normally a blending grape which features heavily in Orvieto whites. The friendly waiter in Il Panciolle suggested this when I asked if the local wine I’d chosen was dry (& @€12 on the carte somewhat less than I’d chosen – so downsold too).

Lovely pale green yellowy colour, good legs, beautiful nose. Great bang of citrus fruit – mainly apricots – rounded but crisp, dry with a very clean palate finish, this was a delicious compliment to our meal out on the terrace. Me – bruschette pomodorro followed by strangozzi al tartufo. L – Antipasto misto followed by strangozzi al verdure. A complimentary Amara rounded off an excellent meal.

Castello di Corbara have been cultivating Grechetto for some time and we’ll come back to this one again.

We took a nightcap in the piazza mercati, cold, clean, refreshing Menabrea Lager. Craft Brewery using alpine water. Nice story.
