2020 Tenuta Russo Bruno Greco Di Tufo
- Tenuta Russo Bruno
- Campania Italy
A pure and pristine example of Greco. Lots of white stone fruit, citrus zest and a crisp mineral laden acidity that keeps you going back for more.
Greco is one of Italy’s most important grapes and in true Italian style, the grape can also be one of the most confusing, with a number of Greco wines produced throughout southern Italy. But it is in the village of Tufo in Campania where Greco really established its reputation as one of the best whites of the peninsula. The vineyards around Tufo are grown at high altitude – 600 metres at RussoBruno – on volcanic soils and are usually harvested in mid to late October. Compared to its Avellino neighbour, Fiano, Greco is typically more structured and a little higher in alcohol.
