Feudi di San Gregorio is an Italian winery in the region of Campania. They produce a large variety of red and white wines and can be considered one of the most well-known Italian wineries. After trying their 2011 vintage Fiano di Avellino I thought I give the Greco di Tufo a shot. The vintage was once again 2011. Greco di Tufo has the DOCG wine qualification.
The bottle label was already stunning. Always love all the ancient mosaic images Feudi di San Gregorio uses for their bottles.
After opening the bottle the pale yellow color stroke my eyes.
Aromas of honey and some fruits, including melon & a little bit of pear were present. The aromas were not that intense though.
On the palate the wine was very soft with a notable minerality and a refreshing acidity. ABV is listed at 13%. The finish was medium.
Greco di Tufo is made with 100% Greco grapes.
Here in Bologna, at Osteria del Vino e della Birra, Greco di Tufo from Feudi di San Gregorio retails for 10.80€.
Comparing the Greco di Tufo to their Fiano di Avellino I have to say that I liked the Fiano a bit more as it has more intense aromas on the nose and a longer finish but that’s just my personal opinion.
The price of 10.80€ is ok. A variety of US-based online seller can be found here.
Even though I’m a bit critical here I would still recommend it to people who want to get to know Greco grape. It’s one of the better wines out there that is made with that grape which is underlined by the Gambero Rosso which awarded the Greco di Tufo from Feudi di San Gregorio 2010 vintage their highest prize, the “Tre Bicchieri” (Three Glasses). It scored 90 out of 100 points at Veronelli.
