Cantina Roccafiore Fiordaliso 2104, IGT Umbria
This has a very attractive mix of ripe peach and pear fruits balanced nicely by a strong mineral streak. The wine has a bit of real character, and would be delicious on its own, with fish or lighter chicken and salad dishes. I had mine with a plateful of seared scallops.
Made from the Grechetto grape, a variety believed to have originally come from Greece (hence the name). Grechetto is widely used to make Orvieto a wine that frequently tastes of very little. However, given the right treatment Grechetto can produce very stylish fruit-filled wines.
