Villa Raiano Greco di Tufo 2019 (75cl)

Villa Raiano have proved themselves to be one of Greco's finest exponents. Believed to have originated in Greece, this is one of Italy's finest white grape varieties, whose style belies its southern origin - taut, mineral and concentrated.

The Greco grapes are sourced from vineyards in Montefusco, Tufo and Altavilla Irpina. The guyot-trained vines are planted in loose chalky / sandy soils, 500m above sea level. Grapes are harvested in early October, and the whole bunches are softly pressed. The wine is fermented and refined in stainless steel, and spends 3-4 months on lees.

Tasting notes

Delicate savoury aromas with notes of white flower, anise and lime citrus. Broad, pithy and mineral on the palate - an attractive chalky note is balanced by pear and grapefruit characters and a touch of white spice. The finish has a mouthwatering saline bite.

Food match

Perfect with risottos and seafood.
