Our 2019 Greco di Oro is vibrant, inviting aromas of peach, brined lemon rind - it possesses a very clean savory quality. This wine pairs perfectly with shrimp and crab - we're saving some for crab season!
If this wine was a song, it would be Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, cohesive, yet rising to amazing heights and energetic with depth and verve- it's a roller coaster ride in the best way! And that's why we're also pairing it with beautiful classical music - get a taste of our music pairing here....
