Selection of grape from owned estate vineyards located in Agro di Tufo at 330 metres a.s.l. And in Santa Paolina  at 420 metres a.s.l.

The Greco di Tufo is a noble grape variety with ancient origin. Widespread on the territory of Campania region, Greco di Tufo is a different cultivation originated from greco vines proceeding from hill of Cicala, in the area of Nola and transplanted in the Tufo area around 1660 from Scipione di Marzo, who from the farmhouse of San Paolo Belsito moved to the wife estate located in Tufo.

Nowadays it expresses all its potential in a limited extended area in the province of Avellino centred on Tufo town and other seven neighbouring municipalities. The grapes are vinified in white; the fermentation takes place in controlled temperature in steel barrels, after fermentation, the wine remains for some months in lees before bottling. Straw yellow color tending to gold with yellow ripe fruit aroma.

The palate is very fruity and fresh with a long finish.
