Story of the wine:
Greco di Tufo is probably one of many varieties brought over from Greece in ancient times to Campania – which was, until the Renaissance, one of the richest parts of Italy – and was centred on the village of Tufo. It is a variety that thrives on the volcanic soils of the area, which is near Naples and Mount Vesuvius. I Favati is one of the local producers who are focussing on
developing wines from the 40 or so varieties that are grown in Campania.
Grape(s): 100% Greco
Area: From vineyards near the village of Casinali in the province of Avellino inCampania.
Greco is an ancient variety grown in the volcanic soils that surround Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Serious producers such as I Favati aid the revival of Campania as one of the most
interesting regions of Italy. A full, ripe flavoured wine on the nose and on the palate it displays a cetain richness and then a nicely balanced elegance.
