Grechetto. The little Greek one. SO many varieties were simply referred to as Grechetto or Greco and assumed a family of very similar grapes from Greek origin, but they’ve finally isolated this important grape, native to the Umbria / Lazio border, from the rest. Orvieto is where you’ll find it most densely grown, and the rare producers like Roccafiore, Barberani and Sergio Mattura have been making fabulous varietal wines, as opposed to the far more common local blends. With Sagrantino as Umbria’s flagship red, it is high time that Grechetto gets taken more seriously and championed for representation in the region.
