2016 Benedetti & Grigi Montefalco Grechetto "Adone" DOC

Grechetto is one of the most important and abundant white varietals in Umbria.  Winemaker Matteo Basili crafted this highly structured, unique white from 50% Grechetto di Orvieto and 50% Grechetto di Todi fruit, hand harvested from family vineyards. Following cold maceration for 16 hours at 8 degrees C, the wine was then fermented in French oak barrels and remained in contact with its fine lees for 6 months.  The wine was released after resting another 8 months in the bottle.  This bone-dry white has <1 g/l residual sugar and 5.8 g/l residual acids, which gives it  clean crisp finish. The wine presents a straw yellow color with golden hues, aromas of white flowers and stone fruits, and a long finish on the palate with hints of butter and almonds.  Enjoy Adone with mild cheeses, first courses, white meats and fish dishes.  Best served at 55F in a large format glass.
