Filadoro, Greco di Tufo, 2016

In Stock Now!

Greco is a grape which probably originated in the south of Italy, although it may have arrived with the ancient Greeks. Greco di Tufo is the DOCG for the vineyards around the village of Tufo, on volcanic soils derived (unsurprisingly) from tuff or tufa. This is a very distinctive style of wine, not that giving on the nose, but offering a fascinating spectrum of flavours, from tangerine and apricot to a clear saline note. This builds well, rounded and refreshing, and shows a splendidly long dry finish: it’s intense and characterful. Drink this year

The vineyards of Irpinia lie across rolling hills at around 500 metres of altitude about 50 kms inland from Naples: the altitude and proximity to mountains mean that breezes and rainfall are generous, allowing the production of white wines of great fi nesse from the ancient grape varieties of the region, including Falanghina, Fiano and Greco di Tufo. It’s also a source of reds from Aglianico, a grape often engendering ageworthy wines of marked tannins and acidity.
