In a Nutshell
A characterful and complex Greco di Tufo from one of Campania's rising stars.
Delicate aromas of white flower, anise and lime citrus. Pithy and mineral on the palate - an attractive chalky note is balanced by zesty pear and grapefruit characters, and finished 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.
