Ciro Picariello - Greco di Tufo 2019
Region: Irpinia / Campania
A stunning white wine, savory, very minerally, long and complex. Ciro's description: 'orange blossom, citrus peel, melon...' There are only 3000 bottles produced of this wine so we don't have very much!
The soil in this vineyard is a sandy clay of volcanic origin called tuff, or 'tufo' in Italian (but the name of the appellation refers not to the soil, but to the village of Tufo, which is not far from Avellino).
