Cantina del Taburno Greco di Tufo DOC'03, Campania, Italy

A nice refreshing wine from Italy to enjoy with "wine-killers" like asparagus and artichokes.

Technical Data:100% Greco Bianco, aged in stainless steel tanks only, no oak. The vines are growing up nearby Naples on volcanic soil, more particularly on the slopes of the Vesuvio.

Description:Bright pale golden yellow color. Quite a nose! Typical nose of Greco wine concentrated on floral aromas with just a hint of apricot. Medium-bodied palate expressing candied apricot and citrus fruits flavors melted with acacia, honey and some fresh almond. Creamy style wine with a refreshing dry entrance, some sweetness on the mid-palate and a really earthy dry finish reminiscent from the place where the vine was growing up.

Food Pairing & Service:Will pair wonderfully with “wine-killers” like asparagus or artichokes! A nice accompaniment to "creme-brule" too. Serve chilled.


Suggested Retail Price:$17.98
