Drink with Certa #9: Di Majo Norante's Greco

Written by Justin Chen

Greco is a group of Italian grape varieties including Greco, Greco Bianco, Greco Giallo, Greco Moro and Greco Nero. All of them bearing the Greco name to imply a Greek heritage but in fact are not related to any found in Greece today. The names Greco probably reference the ancient Greek style of sweet wine, rather than the Greek origin, which were very popular during the Middle Ages.⁣

Greco是意大利葡萄的一個種群,包括:Greco, Greco Bianco, Greco Giallo, Greco Moro 和Greco Nero等葡萄品種。這些葡萄都包含Greco這個名稱,暗示著她們可能來自於希臘,但事實上與現今可以在希臘找到的任何葡萄並無關係。以Greco命名可能指的是這些葡萄曾用於釀制古希臘風格的甜葡萄酒,而並非指她們來源於希臘,而這種風格的葡萄酒在中世紀意大利的非常盛行。

Today the wine I am going to taste is made from Greco, jut Greco without any appendix.  It is probably one of the oldest confirmed Italian grapes。 Although the majority of Greco is planted in Campania, you may still find it in other southern Italy regions like this one from Molise, produced by Di Majo Norante, the leading winery in this region. ⁣

筆者今天將要品試的葡萄酒正是以Greco釀成的,其名稱就叫Greco, 並無任何後綴。她可能是現今確認的意大利最古老的葡萄品種之一。雖然其大部分在坎帕尼亞地區種植,但在其它意大利南部地區也可以找到,正如這款就是來自莫利塞地區,由當地首屈一指的酒莊Di Majo Norante出品。

The wine shows pale lemon colour. The nose is ample and attractive with acacia flower, pear and peach with a hint of honey. On palate, it has a medium plus body with good fruit concentration and some slippery/oily texture and a medium level of acidity. The finish is enjoyable with grapefruit, acacia honey and some mineral and bitter almond sensation.  ⁣

此酒呈淺檸檬黃色。其香氣豐富,槐花、梨和桃子以及一絲蜂蜜氣息,十分誘人。入口,果味集中,酒體中上並帶有些油性潤滑的質地,酸度中等。餘韻中帶有西柚、槐花蜜和一些礦物和苦杏仁,令人回味。

This is relatively soft and easy drinking white wine and very food friendly. Recommended dishes include: fatty fish, mussels cooked in cream source, white source pasta and risotto, mild cheese and Hainan chicken rice. Due to its slippery/oily texture, avocado salad or sandwiches would be another great choice. Enjoy!⁣

這是一款比較柔順易飲的白葡萄酒,很適合搭配食物。可以推薦的菜式包括:肥美的魚類、奶油汁青口、白汁意粉和意式燴飯、中等成熟的芝士和海南雞飯。由於此酒擁有油性質地,因此牛油果沙律或三文治也會是相當好的搭配組合,有機會請試一試!
