Grechetto DOC

CONTROLLED DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN

  • vini-veronelli-2020 Veronelli 2020 - Montefalco Grechetto DOC 2018​

Our finest Grechetto. Structured and elegant, straw yellow in colour with golden reflexes. Its delicate bouquet evokes white fruit and meadow flowers. Fresh and lively with a soft finish, in which almond notes, characteristic of this grape variety, are well-balanced.

CULTIVATION TECHNIQUE

Grown at an altitude of 400 m. Both grechetto clones G5 and G109 are grown in clay-rich soil at a density of 4000 plants per hectare, according to the guyot method. Production yield is around 8 tons per hectare.

VINIFICATION

Grapes are hand picked in the earliest hours of the day at sunrise and taken to the cellar where they are refrigerated for 24 hours in a cell. They are delicately de-stemmed to ensure they remain as intact as possible. Then they are cryomacerated for 16 hours at a low temperature, before being lightly pressed. The resulting must is fermented in steel barrels at a low temperature to conserve its aromas. After fermentation, it is left to age in steel barrels with its fine lees, until bottling.

AGEING

In the bottle for at least 2 months.

SERVING TEMPERATURE

12° - 13°

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
