Colli Martani Denominazione di Origine Controllata

Grechetto has accompanied Umbria’s history from the dawn of time. Zesty and easy to drink, with an intriguing color, it has a delicate aroma conjuring up white fruits, broom and white flowers. Lively and delicately acidic, it is soft and almondy on the finish.
