Greco di Tufo 2009 - 4+ stars, Restaurant Wine/ ...The Greco is round, crisp, and intensely flavored; an excellent Greco, with lemon, lime, roasted nut, honey, and peach aromas/flavors. Long finish.
Greco di Tufo 2011 - 88 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This producer has a magic touch with its white wines, and this fresh Greco di Tufo is no exception. Mineral nuances are enhanced by notes of stone fruit, honey and citrus. A dusty touch of talcum powder appears on the close.
Campania - An Italian Wine Region Ripe for Discovery/ This lovely, well-made wine has received the widest acceptance of any white wine from Campania.
Greco di Tufo 2008 - Outstanding Release, Sommelier Journal/ Lemon-peel, peony, acacia and kiwi aromas mingle in this medium-to-full bodied wine. The fruit persists on the lengthy finish, along with lively acidity and distinct minerality.
Greco di Tufo 2009 - Food & Wine Magazine/ The apricot and subtle smokey notes complement the simplicity (or complexity) of any great sandwich. Recommended with a panini.
Greco di Tufo 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ The 2009 Greco di Tufo is laced with mineral-infused white fruits, wet stones and smoke. Fruit, acidity and the structure are all beautifully balanced in this long, delineated entry-level Greco... proprietor Antonio Capaldo... boasts an impressive resume, replete with world-class academic credentials and stints with Lazard in Paris and McKinsey in Italy. Despite his background, Capaldo remains humble, eager to learn... all qualities which should serve him very well going forward. Noted agronomist Pierpaolo Sirch oversees the work in the vineyards and cellar.
The Unique Wines of Campania/ Firm, almost steely aromas with a touch of anise and honey. Fascinating minerally flavors, resembling a rich, ripe Chablis, but more expressive.
