2019 Tenuta di Salviano

Grapes Grechetto
Colour White
Origin Italy, Umbria

We love this new find from the brilliant Incisa della Rochettas at their beautiful Umbrian outpost. The 2019 Grechetto is nicely textured. Quite deep and quite densely packed with white flowers and firm white-fleshed fruit. Some savoury notes too and a pleasing line of fresh minerality. Not quite as richly loaded at this early stage as the 2018 was - much prettier with more bounce. Smart stuff and totally delicious drawing to mind long lunches under the Italian sun...

The 2019 Grechetto captivates with a display of crushed stone and oyster shells, musky dried apricots and raw almonds. There are depths of silky textures here, nicely complemented by ripe apple and pear, and energizing acidity and salty minerals that saturate toward the close. This finishes with citrusy tension and a perfumed thrust of exotic florals and spice. Consider me a fan. Drinking range: 2021 - 2025 Rating: 91 Eric Guido, (Aug 2021)

Grechetto is usually an angular, edgy white grape, but Salviano’s version is positively majestic. With stunning poise and precision — plus a serene, mouthwatering finish — this is an amazing find. Not something you would stumble across every day, so I do hope you are moved to seek out this wine, as it is a genuine slice of geniusMatthew Jukes, The Daily Mail (Dec 2020)
