Greco di Tufo DOCG – I Gaudi

Greco is an Italian wine grape that may be of Greek origin. The name relates to both white (Greco bianco) and black (Greco nero) grape varieties. While there is more land area dedicated to Greco nero, the Greco bianco is the grape most commonly referred to by “Greco”. In the Campania region it is used to produce the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wine Greco di Tufo.

Greco di Tufo is named after the tiny town of Tufo in Avellino, Campania. The name Tufo is derived from “tuff;” the soft, volcanic rock that makes up the subsoil of the region. This distinctive soil is thought to impart a particular minerality to the wine flavor profile.

Serving temperature: 10 – 12 °

Pairing: The freshness and flavor of this wine mean that it goes very well with fish-based dishes such as salmon, seafood, grilled fish, but also with white meats and fresh cheeses. This Greco di Tufo, thanks to the particular balance between softness and hardness, is also perfect as an aperitif or drunk as an appetizer.
