#87 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
Pale-medium gold reflections with a rich and powerfully aromatic nose of apricot, apple, peach and citrus fruits. On the palate it is full bodied, soft and well balanced with excellent acidity. It improves with age. It is ideal with hors d'oeuvres, shellfish, grilled fish dishes, buffalo mozzarella, chicken and cold meat.
"The 2009 Greco di Tufo is a vivid, multi-dimensional wine laced with white peaches, minerals, flowers and mint, all of which come together in a beautifully nuanced style. The warmth of the vintage radiates through to the long, creamy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.
The Wine Advocate
"A beauty, focused and fresh, with lively fresh-cut honeydew melon and citrus backed by hints of hot stone and spring herbs on the long, cream-tinged finish. Drink now. Tasted wice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases imported."
"Bright yellow-gold. Apricot, mint and white flowers on the nose; more complex and vibrant than the fiano at this stage of its development. Powerful and fairly full in the mouth, with lively suggestions of lime blossom to go along with the apricot and mineral flavors. Juicy, detailed wine with lovely lift, finishing pure, clean and long. 90(+?) points. "
International Wine Cellar
I paired this wine with grilled chicken and it complimented the meal perfectly, but I enjoyed the wine so much that I found I continued to sip it afterward. It has a slightly dry introduction with some fruitiness and citrus with a slightly sweet aftertaste.
