Greco di Tufo DOCG

External Review by Palm Bay International:

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.

Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly acclaimed estate was established in 1986. Along with the expert guidance of consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most esteemed winemaking talents, Feudi di San Gregorio has emerged into the international limelight as a great success story in a region that, for many years, was locked in a virtual winemaking holding pattern. Feudi di San Gregorio has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varietals by placing a thoroughly modern spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Feudi di San Gregorio sources its grapes from the finest vineyards set in the rolling hills of the Irpinia region, located in close proximity to Mount Vesuvius. The volcano's legendary eruptions have laden the sandstone and marl soil with mineral-rich deposits of volcanic ash, forming a unique composition that imparts highly distinctive aromas and flavors in the grapes. Recognizing that a keen understanding of climatic conditions is indispensable to the successful cultivation of vines, Feudi di San Gregorio has invested extensively in state-of-the-art winemaking technology. Each of the estate's vineyards is equipped with a solar-powered meteorological station that gathers data continuously. By closely monitoring the environment, the estate is actively practicing eco-compatible viticulture, thereby reducing the need for artificial methods to an absolute minimum. Further embracing the benefits of technology, construction was recently completed on a modernized cellaring facility. A $20-million investment, it has the capacity to house an impressive 5,000 barrels. Read less

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.

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 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.
