This is the “Ariavechia” cuvee. It’s 100% Greco di Tufo DOCG. 11 year old Greco. Ok. What a nose. Super freakishly mineral. Clean, saline, sea breeze. Stunning. Nutty, earthy and mineral are the top aromas. So fragrant. But still smells like it can age longer. So juicy, dry, structure and balanced. This is super serious and needs 3-4 more years. Amazing density and fruit on the palate but a firm mineral backbone and structure to burn. What a finish. This is epic.

Mad love for This wine. Mad love. Great fruit but not too fruity. Balanced by acidity and minerality. What Italian white wines should be. Delicious but also serious. A hint of integrated petrol. Wow. bought from fass selections ... sooo mineral. From a balance and composition standpoint tastes more like 1er cru white burgundy although the flavors are obviously different.
