About The Winery:

Argillae, the spirit of the matter, comes from the passion, rooted in time, of the owners, Bonollo, Di Cosimo and Ascenzi families.

Starting from their love for the earth and its fruits, they gave life to this plan whose goal is to be projected into the future with the acknowledgment of the past.

According to the philosophy that in order to produce high quality wines and olive oil, it’s necessary to find the right territory, after many researches it has been chosen a unique place in the Orvieto area, which for exposure and structure it’s particularly suitable, and that’s the reason why the name “Argillae” was chosen.

Passion and capacity, tradition and technology, love for the territory, are expressed in our products, wines and olive oil of excellent quality are true ambassadors of Umbria region.

Winemaker's Notes:
The grapes are carefully selected in the vineyards, submitted to a brief cold maceration. After a brief pressing the resulting juice is racked and vinified at controlled temperature and its subsequent fining on fine lees enhances its organoleptic properties.

Tasting Notes:
Colour: dark straw yellow
Fragrance and taste: intense and direct with an almond and mineral flavour, it is the full expression of the particularly intriguing aromas of the Grechetto vine, accompanied by a sense-warming and harmonious tasting experience that perfectly dovetails into the aftertaste sensations released by the “terroir” of this wine estate.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2009 vintage):
"The estate’s 2009 Grechetto is crisp and refreshing in its white stone fruit, flowers, earthiness and minerals. Texturally gorgeous and elegant, Argillae’s Grechetto impresses for its fine balance and polished personality. It is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013. " - Antonio Galloni (Aug 2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2009 vintage):
"Pale straw-green. Lovely aromas of white flowers, yellow plum and pear display considerable depth.Bright and fresh on entry, showing flavors similar to the aromas, then offers a rather dense and viscous mouth feel that isquite appealing. Finishes moderately long, with attractive almond and resiny notes" - Ian D'Agata (Jul/Aug 09)
