Terra d'Uva Greco di Tufo 1860

that’s really good. like yum burgundy but with an itty bitty scratch of tannin instead of butter. Like it a lot ... there’s 1000’s of grapes in Italy alone we all should be drinking - GO IN. — 3 days ago

Greco di Tufo Greco Bianco

I’ll admit it. I can’t explain why. I just LOVE this wine. I hope that helps. Not too fruity, acid-y, dry, sweet, etc. it just has a great taste and finish. Let’s just say the winemaker knew his stuff. — a month ago

Still youthful and could use some time to open up. Plum, BlackBerry, licorice, and tobacco flavors with some firm tannins. Opened for 30 minutes prior to drinking. — 9 days ago

Mastroberardino

Nova Serra Greco di Tufo

Best Greco I’ve had, and I’ve had many. This is an amazingly underrated grape, but’s great along, with cheese, or light fare. All I know is that I want to try some of the other obscure Mastrobernardino whites I can’t usually get and in fact have barely heard of. — 18 days ago

Kami Brut Nature Greco di Tufo

Lyle Fass
9.3

100% Greco di Tufo Brut Nature. Such a lovely, toasty, almond scented nose. Gorgeous. Clean, mineral, sea air. Palate is elegant, cloud like and juicy with nice citrus and lime. Wonderful mouthfeel and very refreshing and finishes limey and minerally. Perfect for a warm day like today.

Upped to a 9.3 as with air this got insane. Lime confectionary craziness on the nose. Psycho depth and purity. This wowed me now.

So glad you like it. Have you tried Lunarossa Quartara? Totally different but equally wild

It is Metodo classico. Not sure on ageing but I dont think extremely long.

Fiano di Avellino DOCG Fiano 2017

One of my favorite Fiano producers every vintage and 2017 is no different. Although I don’t think I’ll buy any more of the 2017. This was much much better in 2014 and 2016. — 8 days ago

Greco di Tufo 2015

9.1

The 2015 Greco di Tufo is minerally intense, showing spicy pear and hints of peach, as notes of savory herbs develop in the glass. On the palate, I’m finding soft textures with impressive weight, giving way to ripe orchard fruit, with hints of hazelnut, subtle spice and minerals. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2020)

Ciro Picariello

Fiano di Avellino 2018

Tight at first. Resembles other fianos until it gets some air. Meaning some light tangerine and pear notes, rocks in a stream, with good spice and acidity. Then it gets caramel apples, spice, chestnut, walnut, oyster/mushroom, with lots of electric minerals tingling over the whole mouth. There’s something great about good fianos and grecos, maybe it’s volcanic, but the spice and electric mineral component takes on a piquancy like blue cheese. I love it, and this is probably my favorite young. I wish I had space to put some aside. Not super long but full of flavor. — 5 days ago

Sounds like a great wine for early autumn

Romano Clelia

Colli di Lapio Fiano di Avellino 2018

Really great minerality: electric, alive on the palate. Lightest amount of tropical fruits that are gonna grow into jackfruit with air. Young it’s like green mango, green apricot. Some whole orange, and grapefruit. The phenolic bitterness is halfway between almond/flower and grapefruit and it’s pith and zest. There is some white spice and the finish is really mineral. Very active acids. That finish is long as hell. The wine is super light in color and body, but the finish grows like a firework in the mouth. There’s a good dusting of smoky ash throughout. — 15 days ago
