Vesevo Greco di Tufo 2021
If you’re looking for some inspiration for a new white wine, then the Irpinian hills of Campania is a great shout for something a little refreshing. Despite its southern Italian location, altitudes up to 700 metres above sea level combined with cooling sea breezes from the Bay of Naples, ensure sun-drenched vineyards are kept cool.
Greco di Tufo is a DOCG named after the town of Tufo and arguably produces the region’s best white wines. Greco from this DOCG stands out for its perfume and mineral complexity thanks to its unique volcanic soil composition. The Greco grape is also perfectly adapted to this poor volcanic terroir, and its late ripening nature allows it develop layers of complexity without losing any acidity
The Vesevo Greco di Tufo is fermented at cool temperatures producing aromas of lemons, pears and ripe stone fruits. The palate is silky in texture with a fresh, minerally finish. A sunny, fresh white wine, perfect as an aperitif or with seafood.
