This fresh white wine is made entirely from Greco di Tufo grapes. This grape variety makes for lush, mouth-filling white wines, and this is one of them. The wine has a bright yellow color and beautiful aromas of exotic fruit and peach blossom on the nose. The wine tastes creamy, with a hint of almond and a fine lively acidity. Nice long finish.
The vineyards are 500 meters above sea level. The soil of the vineyards is a mixture of clay and limestone. The grapes are harvested in mid-October. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats where they are aged sur lie at a low temperature for 6-8 months. The wine then ages in the bottle for about 3 months and is then always released by the summer of the following year.
This Devon Greco di Tufo tastes great with a meal with fish, shellfish and crustaceans. Also delicious with vegetarian dishes, with toast and starters.
