Greco di Tufo DOCG 2018
Grapes: 100% Greco
Greco di Tufo is located around Altavilla irpina, Tufo and Chianche (Campania). In the heart of Irpinia, the tufaceous soil gives Greco grapes distinct elegance of taste and strong personality, typical of the wines obtained from grapes in this area, giving strong emotions to every sip. Gentle pressing, then chilled gravity settling, followed by fermentation off the skins. Matured in steel for about 4 months.
The 2018 vintage was characterized by complex climatic conditions sometimes with almost tropical weather. A mild winter was followed by snow in early march which increased the humidity of environment. The rest of the spring was characterized by extreme heat peaks alternating with some rainfall especially in summer which created high humidity. In June the rains started to give a little respite, favoring a regular flowering and in a fairly short time. The month of August was marked by some brief afternoon thunderstorms maintaining very warm temperatures. Overall, the development of vegetation was fast, continuous and vigorous. The large temperature range has slowed down the maturation process, favoring the synthesis of primary aromas and secondary precursors and preserving very fresh acidity. This vintage shows grapes with excellent health.
From the straw yellow color, this Greco di Tufo offers a rich bouquet of ripe fruits, from white peach to apricot, sweet almond that meld with exquisitely mineral and citrus notes. On the palate, the vigorous taste is rich, complex and fresh at the same time, completing a wine of great personality.
Lobster, pizza, or any seafood pasta dishes.
