Arnaldo Caprai Grecante 2015 Grechetto





Arnaldo Caprai Grecante 2015 Grechetto, $16.14-$18.99, 90 points, poured a light brass color with a green hue and grading water clear at the glass edge.
The aromas were shy, but hints of apple, honeysuckle, and juniper were good.
Light-bodied with good acidity managed delicious flavors of subtle pineapple, grapefruit, and a floral component.
Finished well on the trailing palate, a touch of ginger, black pepper, watermelon rind, and a balanced 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my Asian cuisine.

  1. A Greek grape...how appropriate!

    1. The origins of grapes has been, in our technological times, dominated by DNA testing and economic-politics, and remains the purview of places like the University of California, Davis and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, which in the case of Pignoletto DOC (Grechetto from the commune of Monteveglio in Bologna), has given and added to the complexity of grape origins, a "place name".
      Salute to Greek, Italian, and even Croatian wines!
