Villa Raiano, Greco di Tufo DOCG, 2019, Campania, Italy


This is a great expression of Greco di Tufo. An ancient variety of grape which is thought to have been cultivated by ancient Phoenicians and Greeks (hence the name), it's a little taste of antiquity, if you like. In the modern era, it represents high quality food friendly robust white wines from south Italy, and is certainly one of Italy's finest white wine grapes.

Quite simply, this wine is full of white flower, anise, lime, and grapefruit aromas. A touch of honey, balanced by searing salinity and texture. Flickers of white spice provide a splash of something different. A true taste of southern Italy. 

Villa Raiano have proved themselves to be one of Greco's finest exponents. The family-owned 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. The Raiano family is dedicated to producing a range of wines from local grape varieties Aglianico, Fiano and Greco.
