Straightforward yet satisfying, the palate is medium-light in weight and mouthwatering, with ample acidity and a delicate tannic structure that leaves you immediately ready for your next sip.” (WE 9/20)
*2018 Scacciadiavoli Montefalco Grechetto, Umbria, Italy- 100% Grechetto,  an indigenous Umbrian varietal and Cantina Scacciadiavoli, (cast out the devils), takes its name from a 19th century exorcist who lived in the small village bordering the vineyard.
