Description

Greco di Tufo is named after the tiny town of Tufo in Avellino, Campania. The name Tufo is derived from “tuff;” the soft, volcanic rock that makes up the subsoil of the region. This distinctive soil is thought to impart a particular minerality to the wine flavor profile. Greco di Tufo, is the oldest grape variety of the Avellino area. It was imported from the Greek region of Thessaly by the Pelasgian peoples.

Food pairing

Ideal with appetizers, seafood-based dishes or with fried fishes, oysters, lobster and shellfish. Also excellent with buffalo Mozzarella and eggplant parmigiana.

Vinification

Grown in limestone & clay-based soils and produced from 10 year old vines, this classic Greco was cold-macerated and pressed into temperature controlled fermentation tanks for 20 days. The final wines were rested and then bottled the February after the harvest.
