Nose: Fresh pears, apples, limes and faint mint alongside other fresh herb infusions
Palate: Vibrant flavours of pear, apple and lime, a back drop of light quince and subtle infusions of herbs. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a medium to long aftertaste.
Pairings: Sipped or serviced with appetizers like smoked salmon or soft cheeses with fruit salsa, grilled or roasted seafood.
I love a good wine with a story and this impressive indigenous Italian drop certainly hits this criteria! A gorgeous white from Campania.
Nestled in the hilly terrain of Italy's idyllic region of Campania is the Ferrara family, who are undeniably the world's best producers of Greco di Tufo. This family-owned winery has specialised in producing Greco di Tufo for generations, four to be exact, and own a mere 8 hectares of vineyards tucked in the mountains of the tiny commune of Tufo. Tufo is a region known for gorgeous Greco, an Italian white grape indigenous to southern Italy. At 500 meters above sea level, the region's heat is lessened by the altitude and hilly terrain, which protects this special plot from the otherwise intense mediteranean summers.
Whether you're grilling, roasting, sipping, sunbaking, eating cheese or enjoying company, I think Terra d'Uva Greco do Tufo is an absolute must-have Italian white wine. Adoro!
