Sergio Mottura “Poggio della Costa” Grechetto 2020, Grechetto di Civitella d’Agliano IGT
100% Grechetto from the Poggio della Costa vineyard.
A rich golden yellow, when very young it offers flavours of flowers and exotic fruits (pineapple). By late summer it develops a pleasing aromatic bouquet, full and fruity. In the mouth it is warm, crisp and persistent with a lingering delicately tannic finish. It suits savoury dishes such as lasagne, spaghetti “alla carbonara” and “amatriciana”, bean or chickpea soups, roast veal in a cream sauce, ossobuco alla milanese and, naturally, all fish: salt cod “alla livornese”, red mullet and grilled tuna steaks are all particularly good pairings. Gambero Rosso have named it the best Italian wine for asparagus.
