Benito Ferrara, "Terra d'Uva" Greco di Tufo

A Gorgeous Greco!
Flavors abound in this magnificent mountain made white from Campania.

A mere 8 hectares tucked in the mountains of Tufo produce this 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.

Crisp and vibrant, this is a stunning Italian white wine. We were captivated by its wildly complex aromas and zesty, refreshing finish.

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.

The 2017 Terra d'Uva by Benito Ferrara is a wonderfully versatile white. With its dry finish and zest, 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 or any herb-based dishes.

Oven roasted Branzino? Absolutely!

$22.95 per bottle / $275.40 per case
