Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 100% Greco, grown on hillsides at moderate altitudes, where the nature of the terroir exalts the characteristics of the Greco grape. Since 1945, the Mastroberardino family has dedicated itself to the rediscovery and re-evaluation of this vine along the banks of the river Sabato in Irpina.

Straw-yellow in color, this Greco di Tufo offers intense aromas of apricots and peaches . On the palate, the wine shows great structure and zesty acidity, leaving an overall impression of complexity and elegance. Pairs perfectly with seafood, grilled fish, cold dishes or simply as an aperitif.

About Mastroberardino:

Mastroberardino is Campania's most renowned winery, established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino. Pietro was awarded the professional title of 'Mastro' as testament to his skills in quality winemaking, a tradition that has continued uninterrupted for ten generations and one that still continues today. Located in the town of Altripalda, in the ancient region of Irpinia, this family-based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of this region: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fiano, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe. Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the ancient winemaking heritage of Campania.
