In a Nutshell
A characterful and complex Greco di Tufo from one of Campania's rising stars.
A ripe and honeyed nose with aromas of pear, green apple and citrus peel. More ripe apple fruit on the palate balanced by notes of greengage. Broad, pithy and mineral, with a mouthwatering saline bite.
The Greco grapes are sourced from vineyards in Montefusco - guyot-trained vines planted in sandy soils, 500m above sea level. Grapes are harvested in early October, and the whole bunches are softly pressed. The wine is fermented and refined in stainless steel, and spends 3-4 months on lees.
The family-owned winery of Villa Raiano was established in 1996, in the village of Raiano, Campania. In 2009 a new winery was built – on top of a hill amongst vineyards and chestnut woods, overlooking the River Sabato near San Michele di Serino in the Southern Apennines.
