About Greco Di Tufo 2016 Donnachiara

This beautiful Italian white wine was awarded the prestigious Tre Bicchieri from the Gambero Rosso and stands beside Italy's most famous and costly wines. They called it a "Full expression of its terroir, the heart of Greco di Tufo." Profiled in Wine Enthusiast Magazine as a Rising Star, Donnachiara's vineyards are family owned and have been for five generations but the brand new, very modern winery was established in 2005. Vineyards with this traditional local grape variety slope down the steep hillsides next to the winery. Drenched in sunlight but colled by the high altitude which tempers developemnet and extends the growing season, allowing the grapes to take on ideal balance and complex flavors. Celebrated Enologist Ricardo Coltarella is now in charge of the winemaking. This is 100% Greco but only select grapes are chosen. A cold fermentation at 57-60°F in steel vats for 15 days to retain the rich fruit flavors. No malolatic fermentation is done allowing the wine to have a mouthwatering acidity. James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "A dense and layered greco with lots of dried melon and pear character. Hints of dried peach. Full body. Delicious dry finish. Shows tension. Drink now."
