An Umbro Greco
The Grechetto vine variety has very ancient origins probably connected with the Ancient Greece as well as all those vines that contain the name "Greco" in the root of the denomination. Like all the Greco, freed from many similarities but also characterized by differences that make them unique, even the Grechetto has undergone, especially between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, profound ampelographic studies and, subsequently with technological development, to genetic analysis. The result of these studies was the definition of a set of elements that make the Grechetto different from all the others with evident unique genetic and ampelographic characteristics. The Grechetto is therefore an autochthonous vine variety typical of Umbria and central Italy, in areas such as Lazio, Tuscany and marginally Marche. In fact, it is the native Umbrian white wine "par excellence" cultivated, with various peculiarities, throughout the region.
