The Greco grapes for this zingy, aromatic white come from vineyards in the communes of Tufo, Altavilla Irpina and Montefusco, in Italy's southern region of Campania. The mature vineyards lie at an altitude of 550 to 650 meters above sea level, here they benefit from cooler ripening conditions. After harvesting by hand, the bunches are destemmed and crushed before the must is left for 36 hours to rest prior to a cool fermentation at 15 to 16°C, three months of lees aging follows. The bouquet offers aromas of almond and honeysuckle, the palate is well-balanced, crisp, lively and complex, with a refreshing minerality and hints of grapefruit, melon and orange zest.
