Claudio Morelli 'La Vigne delle Terrazze' Bianchello del Metauro 2020
Region: Bianchello del Metauro, Marche, Italy Grape(s): Bianchello Winemaker: Claudio Morelli Drinks Best: Now
The Morelli estate is located in the town of Fano, where the Metauro river flows into the Adriatic Sea. Meanwhile, the nearby Apennine mountains fall dramatically into the river and ocean, making for stark contrasts in terroirs from vineyards that may only be a few miles from one another. Claudio says this allows each vineyard to retain its own voice and character that he simply shepherds into the bottle. Bianchello may be a grape you have never heard of, however the wine is extremely approachable. Crisp and dry with a lovely round texture and flavors of ripe apple, pear, and fresh herbs - this is something new for Pinot Grigio drinkers!
Pairing: Pizza with red onion, fresh green apple, goat cheese, and prosciutto
