Winemaker Notes

Intense straw yellow. Offers fruity flavours of pear, apricot, pineapple and citrus on the nose. Smooth, elegant and structured, with good freshness and a great persistence that confirms and amplifies the olfactory sensations.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The gorgeous 2014 Greco di Tufo does a terrific job of defying the odds in this difficult vintage. The wine boasts excellent mineral definition with brimstone, pencil shaving and crushed white stone backed by softer fruit tones of pear, peach and white flower. Fruit comes from 20-year-old vines and is processed in steel vats in order to maintain aromatic freshness and purity. It's a lovely proposition for near-term drinking.

Chiara was born in "Irpinia" region and she was raised on an Aglianico vineyard, family-owned since '800. She grew to love these charming lands, This passion was passed on across the family, woman to woman for 5 generations, now to ilaria petitto, chiara’s daughter, only responsible today of keeping alive this family tradition made of magic scents and atmospheres. From this love and respect springs new winery, a small but precious jewel. Located in this spectacular land with a tradition of wine making that stretches back over a thousand years, Chiara's winery is equipped with the most advanced control instruments for both the production and the storage of the great Irpinian wines. The quality of the wine produced is in the heart of our company's philosophy which is in part achieved in our ownership of the vineyards, the careful and passionate attention to which yield the most bountiful grapes and precious wines.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes grow in every region throughout Italy—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean.

Italian Wine Regions

Naturally, most Italian wine regions enjoy a Mediterranean climate and a notable coastline, if not coastline on all borders, as is the case with the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. The Alps in the northern regions of Valle d'Aosta, Lombardy and Alto Adige create favorable conditions for cool-climate grape varieties. The Apennine Mountains, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south, affect climate, grape variety and harvest periods throughout. Considering the variable terrain and conditions, it is still safe to say that most high quality viticulture in Italy takes place on picturesque hillsides.

Italian Grape Varieties

Italy boasts more indigenous grape varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most Italian wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties. Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany, as well as Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy Piedmontese wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the white wines, Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Garganega. The list goes on.

This late-ripening variety from Campania flaunts an invigorating mineral character—more so than its other regional white grape compatriots, Fiano and Falanghina. Bursting with fresh citrus, stone fruit, herb and spice, Greco di Tufo wines are dark lemon or gold in color but as that might suggest, aren’t particularly heavy on the palate. The wines are medium- to full-bodied and have a relatively high acidity. The name Tufo comes from the soft, volcanic rock found all over in the subsoil of the region where Greco thrives.
