Vicus Sannio Greco 2016


Synopsis, Our Opinion: A “Not Bad” Italian white.

Producer/Winery: Brunno & Giuliano Muratori; Vicus; Benevento, Italy.

Grape Variety: Greco Bianco.

Geographic Appellation: Sannio; Campania, Italy.

Vintage: 2016

Price: $16.00 (with a wine dinner discount)

Purchased From: Tre Nonne Italian Restaurant Wine dinner; Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Paired With: Roast chicken in pasta with cream sauce and a garden salad with feta cheese.

Tasting:

    Chilled before opening. Clear, oat straw color. Ripe melon, peach and fresh cut alfalfa aromas with hints of banana in the background. Smooth, zesty, acidic, medium body (that was considerably heavier than it looked when poured into the glass) and a 150-grit texture. Ripe melon and mineral flavors, dry fresh crisp acidity and light tropical fruit taste that carried through a long slightly mineral finish. We seldom purchase wine that’s served at wine dinners, but at the time we thought is was quite good with restaurant’s white sauce pasta. Unfortunately paired with our chicken and cream sauce pasta it was just “OK” and about the same sipping after the dinner. At this price point we would recommend it, but call it a “Not Bad” Italian white.
