Greco di Tufo DOCG

The winery was founded in 2001 by the love of a winemaker for Fiano and Aglianico di Taurasi and the passion of an agronomist winemaker for the Greco di Tufo. Valle Sabato, on the border of the province of Avellino with that of Benevento covers a territory with the typical hills with sweeping valleys and high ridges. On these ridges at a height of about 450 meters above sea level, the area is well prepared serving to accommodate the Greco vine, a grape otherwise known as Aminea Gemina imported from Thessaly before the Christian era.

Winemaking: Soft pressing of the grapes and fermentation at controlled temperature of 12 ° C for 4 months, then on the lees for 2 months. Aged in bottle for 22 months prior to release. 

Tasting notes: Color: golden yellow Aromas: very fruity, with hints of pineapple, almond, broom, pear and honey Palate: Dry, warm, soft with adequate freshness and a very prolonged persistence

Food pairing: Perfect with seafood, shellfish and blue cheese
