"La Marchesa" Umbria IGP Bianco 2021 - Feudi Spada

La Marchesa, an Umbria IGP proposed by Feudi Spada, is the result of an unusual encounter between the most typical of the white grape varieties of the Umbria region, Grechetto, and Riesling Renano, which is present in a small percentage of close to 10%. In the producer's intentions, this white wine represents a bit of modern Umbria, which maintains its roots with Grechetto but looks to the future with the contribution of Riesling. The name - this is a nice curiosity to share with friends at your next dinner party - derives from the Marchesa, wife of Orazio Spada, who in 1600 created the Opera Pia for the town's poor. Thanks to this mission, every poor person in the village received a dowry in cattle, sheep, goats and sows. Straw yellow in the glass, this Umbrian white surprises (pleasantly) with the quality of its aromas. Orange blossom and tropical fruit above all that in the mouth manage to integrate well with a pleasant minerality, typical for wines from volcanic soils. A fine, versatile white that, in Marchesa's health, can accompany an entire dinner from aperitifs to fish main courses. Try it, for example, with a cod salad, with cherry tomatoes, olives and fresh parsley.

It was in 1669 when, returning from a trip to France, Orazio Spada brought back some Grenache vine shoots from which he succeeded in producing an exquisite wine, the so-called 'Chianti di Viceno'. Preserved and handed down from father to son for almost 400 years, even today those vines are still kept on the vine and represent one of Feudi Spada's most precious treasures. To those original vines have been added others of Syrah, Rhine Riesling and Alicante. We are in the heart of Umbria where, thanks to the meeting of two friends, Alessandro and Maurizio, a new adventure began in 2010, aimed at recovering and enhancing the value of old plots of land. Starting with historical plantings of over 90 years old, recovered and grafted by grafting scions from mother plants. Today Feudi Spada is a beautiful, modern and up-to-date reality. No insecticides, anti-botritics, weed killers or chemical fertilisers are used in the vineyard. In general, treatments in the vineyard are reduced to the bare minimum, through maniacal attention to the weather and the health of the vines. An onerous commitment that is, however, amply repaid when one has the opportunity to taste one of the good products of the beautiful Viceno winery.
