Greco di Tufo 'G'

  • Pietracupa
  • Campania, Italy

Method & Production

2010 was the first vintage of the Greco G, a wine which Sabino Loffredo decided to make only when he was done with his past mistakes. The vintage was excellent, providing perfect growing conditions for the vines. Fermentation took place in stainless steel, afterwhich the wine spent 24 months of ageing on the lees.

Tasting notes

"Sturdy, elegant and unyielding, Greco G delivers a complex bouquet that sees mineral nuances laced between yellow fruit, honey and candied almond. There is a tightness and a compactness to the bouquet that is quite extraordinary. In the mouth, the wine is solid, mineral driven and well delineated by its acidity and its creamy structure. It's balanced acidity shines bright. I'm putting my money on this wine for its promising aging potential. Pietracupa's Greco G has the potential to become one of the defining white wines of Campania. It is an extraordinary effort. Drink :2016-2028." 95+ points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate (April 2015)
