Easy going and fresh, the 2012 Assisi Grechetto is a one-dimensional wine with bright citrus, honey and white flower. It takes an uncritical view on this food friendly grape used so commonly in central Italy. Green notes of cut grass and exotic fruit wrap around the finish. Drink: 2013-2014. ||Consulting winemaker Riccardo Cotarella helped set the foundations of this winery in the Spello area of the Assisi hills. eRobertParker.com.August, 2013
