  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Greco di Tufo is another reference-point wine in this price range. Layers of minerality and floral, perfumed fruit are woven together in a focused expression of fruit that lingers on the palate with notable length. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. "
