Description

This wine is a pure and clean expression of the Greco di Tufo terroir. Experience an unoaked tapestry of delicate aromas, including nectarines, kumquats, ferns, sage, white pepper and ginger. In contrast to the gentle nose, the palate has few rivals for flavour and energy with an overwhelming savoury-acid grip. Its long trajectory ends in an irrepressible glow of citron and white peaches. Pair with foil-baked sea bream.

Greco di Tufo DOCG is located in the Campania region of southern Italy, where it produces the most beloved wine of the region. Tufo refers to the village and the soil type, translated into English as "tuff", or compacted ash from ancient volcanic explosions. The soil is credited with creating the unique taste of Greco di Tufo wines, which contain complicated perfume and mineral aromas and flavours. Winemaker Sabino “Sammy Bruno” Loffredo has earned a reputation for making some of the best Greco and Fiano wines in the world, as evidenced by numerous awards such as "Up and Coming Winery of the Year 2006" by Gambero Rosso.

Sabino Loffredo is one of the most talented and successful winemakers in southern Italy. Because he had to give up his career as a sportsman after an accident, the talented wine taster moved to the Pietracupa family estate in Montefredane at the turn of the millennium, which was still managed by his father Peppino, where he steadily expanded his project and led the business to great heights in just a few years. Thanks to his craftsmanship and his great determination, Sabino has succeeded in producing wines in a personal and unmistakable style that are highly appreciated far beyond Campania. Today, the owner of the estate, who works with great seriousness and rather quietly, is not only regarded as one of the most successful newcomers and one of the best producers of fragrant mineral white wines, but also as a much sought-after producer of spicy-elegant red wines. The vineyards of Pietracupa reach heights of up to 800 metres. The soils are loamy and calcareous. Thanks to good south-eastern locations, the vines benefit from a microclimate with sufficiently high temperature fluctuations, which allows the grapes to ripen very well.
