On the Road with the Grape Guy

Anteprima Sagrantino: Grechetto e Bianco (White)

13 Sep 2022

(May 2022) … Some of the wines below are barrel samples, and therefore are given a Good / Better / Best rating for potential in the future. Any wine that is finished and in bottle is given a star rating.

Observations and Comments …

This is a hit or miss grape/style to me - which is why I lumped them together. Some can be refreshing and lively, while others are downright boring, it’s like Pinot Grigio 2.0. Keep 'em crisp and light and you stand a chance of winning a segment of the market internationally; weigh these down with oak and other nonsense and there is nothing of interest here.
