Greco di Tufo D.O.C.G.
Greco di Tufo Vittorio is produced with the grapes coming from a steep and sunny
vineyard implanted in 1998 in Montefusco, 750 m above sea level. Slight overripeness
manual harvest, maceration on the skin, fermentation at the controlled
temperature, and at least 36 months of refining (18 in stainless steel tanks and 18
in bottles). The color is a wonderful gold yellow, with citrus and mineral notes at the
nose and a full body structure in the mouth. This wine has the name of the father of
Erminia, Generoso and Roberto Di Meo and of the son of the latter.
