Winemaker Notes: Grecante is a fresh, crisp wine enjoyed chilled at a temperature of 50 degrees F as an aperitif wine or consumed with seafood, veal, or poultry dishes.
91 Points James Suckling: A dense white with a lightly chewy texture and lots of dried apple and pear character. Full body. Flavorful and beautiful. Tangy acidity at the end. Drink now.
90 Points Robert Parker: I’d definitely put this wine on a list of favorite value whites from Italy. The 2016 Colli Martani Grechetto Grecante makes your mouth happy as soon as the wine hits the palate. The bouquet is racy and zesty with crisp notes of lime, green papaya and tropical fruit. Despite the liveliness of the mouthfeel, the wine plays even stronger cards in terms of texture and fiber.

Winemaker’s Notes: Paso Robles Zins are bold, full-bodied wines with jammy fruit and pepper. Biker roars out of the glass with heady aromas of blackberry, black currant and spice. Flavors of wild bramble, sweet black cherry and jam follow while the finish is intense, layered and long. Biker will not disappoint when paired with pasta and red sauce, meat lover’s pizza or braised short ribs.
