Oven Roasted Branzino?
Absolutely! Grilled - even be better.
Whether you're grilling or roasting, Terra d' Uva Greco di Tufi is an absolute must-have Italian white wine.
Within Campania, Benito Ferraro owns a mere 8 hectares tucked in the mountains of Tufo, a region known for gorgeous Greco, an Italian white grape indigenous to southern Italy.
At 500 meters above sea level, the warmth of the region is mitigated by the altitude and hilly terrain, which protects this tiny parcel from the heat.
No oak is used during fermentation, which preserves the vibrant fruit profile. Flavors abound - blanched almond, fresh lemon zest, white cherry, white peach, fresh-herbs and accents of apricot. You will be delighted by this wine's mineral snap and complex, lingering finish of apple and white pepper.
With its dry finish, we can comfortably suggest it with a wide variety of food pairings.
Salads and your favorite cheese are a must. But, given its minerality from the coastal influence and micro-climate, we suggest seafood ( a la Bronzino) or any herb-based dishes.

"A wealth of dried daffodils and buttercups vies with riper peaches and apricots for control on the nose. The medium-to full-bodied palate is so cleanly cut through by vivacious acidity, not to mention sliced nectarines and green apples. Brilliant minerality on the fine yet textured finish. "

"Clean and lemony on the lively nose. Then floral and piercing on the palate, hints of orchard fruit, lime and minerals vying for attention. Closes long and lovely, with an almost Fiano-like quality."
