About The Wine

To round out his offerings Ciro Picariello purchases a small amount of Greco di Tufo. A variety that can often lean towards broad and golden, in the hands of Ciro, Greco is a delicate wine filled with honey suckle, apple blossom and citrussy lift.

The palate is all lemon with a touch of barely ripe stone fruit and the signature 'tufo' minerality comes through on the finish.

About Ciro Picariello

Ciro Picariello’s tiny 7 hectare estate lies at the heart of Campania’s white grape region of Avellino among the Irpinian hills. More precisely, he has four hectares of Fiano and the red grape Aglianico perched on the slopes above Summonte at 650 metres altitude on volcanic, calcareous clay and ‘pietra di rame’ (copper stone) soils. The remaining 3 ha of Fiano and Greco are to be found 10 km away in the village of Montefredane, at 550 meters altitude on more clay dominant soils.

Grapes are picked in late October and given a clean but minimal treatment in the cellar; slow and gentle pressing with only the first pressing used; the fermentation ensues with natural yeasts, the gross lees are removed shortly before the fermentation finishes and the wines are fermented completely dry), the wine is then kept in tank on the fine lees until the end of the following summer, when it is bottled. Use of SO2 is minimal; The wine is clarified naturally and not filtered. These wines are brilliant, Ciro has the touch, and these are superb, expressive and character-filled wines that are some of the best white wines being produced in Italy today.

From The Importer

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
