Marzo Greco di Tufo Scipionis
Greco di Tufo DOCG
The grapes for this wine are taken from the oldest part of the San Paolo vineyard, which limits the production to around 2000 bottles. The grapes are hand picked and pressed with their stems, this reduces the amount of juice that can be taken but also improved the quality of the grapes that reach the press.
Decanter 5 Star and Regional Winner ('Southern Italy Whites') in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2013:
"Elegant style with a white flower bouquet and a herbal, very mineral nose. Lemony austerity, fennel and rhubarb, stone fruit and a touch of asparagus. Harmonious, with a citrussy, mineral finish."
Some years in bottle has cooled if not dampened the ardour of this wine, perhaps it is now more elegant, with pure deep ripe lemon, mineral with bitter lemon on the finish. Deliciously mineral, with herb and floral nuances. 13.5%
