Zanchi Pizzale Amelia Bianco is an intriguing white blend from Italy's Umbria. This is a classic wine in the purest of local traditions, a finely-balanced blend of Trebbiano Toscano, Malvasia, and Grechetto grapes. An appealing straw yellow, Pizzale boasts a fruit-rich bouquet followed by a dry, harmonious palate that makes it a delicious partner to seafood antipasti as well as all fish and shellfish dishes.
Azienda Agricola Zanchi was started in 1970, when Licurgo Zanchi purchased an old farmhouse in the Amelia hills, in Umbria. In the fields that surrounded the house, obviously untended for years, a few rows of ancient vines survived, and some centuries-old olive trees. Over the years, his son Leonardo and wife Annamaria transformed Licurgo's sentimental project into a modern wine operation. With their background as pioneer winegrowers in the hills of Amelia, the Zanchi family have now reached the third generation, with daughters Flores and Flaviana and son-in-law Mario. Over the years, they have crafted the wines that are most representative of their local growing area, wines that showcase the qualities of the local grape varieties.
