Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Along with Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo is arguably the region’s most prestigious white wine. Greco vines are believed to have been introduced to Campania by the Greeks (hence its name). The name Tufo instead refers to one of the villages from which the wine comes, but also the type of tufa-rich volcanic and clay soils which give Greco di Tufo its typical minerality. The Nativ Greco di Tufo has the characteristic pale color with gold reflections and opens with a rich and powerfully aromatic nose of apricot, peach and citrus. On the palate it is full bodied, soft and well balanced with excellent acidity and minerality. It is ideal as an aperitif with hors d’oeuvres, shellfish, lobster, all types of seafood, chicken dishes and cold meat.
