Italy / Campania / Sannio Greco DOC

White of Greco

One 750ml bottle (12 bottles make a full case)

"Alongside her Falanghina, Alexia also produces the better-known Campanian varieties Greco and Fiano. Her Greco (which is to say the same variety as is used for Greco di Tufo) is held in bottle for a year before release because the variety has high amounts of natural acidity. Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Ian d’Agata says ‘Typical aromas and flavors include yellow flowers, honey, peach, pear, and ripe tropical fruit…’ and he also mentions an almost oily mouthfeel that is typical of Greco. Pale yellow in color, very distinct in aroma and flavor (tropical fruit (guava?), and Mediterranean herbs (marjoram?), apricot. Fresh acidity, medium weight, very long finish; even outside of the classic growing area this noble variety can make excellent wine. Drink young or with a few years of age for additional complexity." -Oliver McCrum
