Roccafiore GrechettoTabula Rasa
Luca describes his Grechetto as ‘dry, with a pleasing freshness, supported by minerality and persistence. The bouquet is of white flowers, with attractive notes of pink grapefruit and green apple.’
Cantina Roccafiore farms 15 hectares (almost 40 acres) of vineyards in the rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside near the town of Todi. The Baccarelli family (father and son) bought the property in 1999, planted the local Grechetto and Sangiovese along with small parcels of Moscato Giallo, Sagrantino, and Montepulciano, and made their first vintage in 2005. Formerly in the energy business, they kept a mind toward sustainability from the beginning, building a renewable facility, using organic fuels for their tractors, and farming organically.
