Product Description

Greco Di Tufo, one of the super white wine varieties from Campania

The Greco grape is originally from Greece, but has been cultivated since Roman times in Campania. Greco di Tufo received the DOCG status in 2003. This wine from an ancient grape variety, Greco, is produced in the province of Avellino, and is less fruity but more mineral-rich than the Fiano di Avellino.

The tufa soil rich in sulphur and calcium give the grapes an intense aromatic and mineral fragrance, a distinctive characteristic of Greco Di Tufo.

Straw-yellow in colour with a fruity bouquet of overtones of lime leaf, vanilla and apple. The palate has a good structure and an elegant, persistent finish with flavours of white currant.

Food Matching: As an aperitif, accompanying starters and dishes with fish, shellfish, risotto with seafood  or ‘funghi porcini’ (porcini mushrooms), white meat, lobster and soft, fresh cheeses as well as vegetable dishes.

Harvest: Second week of October

Fermentation: Gentle pressing the whole clusters , cold static clarification. Fermentation using partial autochthonous yeast starter
