Greco di Tufo is one of the oldest grapes in the province of Avellino and was brought into the area of Tufo by the Greeks in the first century BC. The vineyards are south facing at 500 metres above sea level and the vines are around 20 years old. The grapes are harvested at the end of October and after fermentation, they spend 3 months on the lees in stainless steel tanks, before further refining in bottle. This Greco di Tufo was an IWSC winner in 2016.
Greco di Tufo by Lapilli has notes of stone fruits that dominate the aromas with peach and apricot. There is a delicious complexity that comes with hints of pear, almond, sage and a twist of minerality. The acidity cleanses the palate and keeps the wine refreshing and moreish, while the ripe fruit gives the wine a certain roundness and softness which balances perfectly.
Best to be enjoyed with
Greco di Tufo by Lapilli is an excellent accompaniment to white meats, shellfish, seafood and vegetable soups. Try it with marinated fresh anchovies or mixed fried fish.
