Sabino Loffredo made the 2010 Greco di Tufo Greco G only after he was sure he had learned from all his past mistakes. This is the first time this amazing wine has been produced. This excellent vintage provided for perfect growing conditions and Sabino claims that fruit was ripened off the sunlight that was reflected from the clay stones below the vines as well as from above.
Sturdy, elegant and unyielding, Greco G delivers a complex bouquet that sees mineral nuances laced between yellow fruit, honey and candied almond. There is a tightness and a compactness to the bouquet that is quite extraordinary. In the mouth, the wine is solid, mineral driven and well delineated by its acidity and its creamy structure. It’s balanced acidity shines bright.
