Pietracupa Greco di Tufo G 2010

Pietracupa Greco di Tufo G 2010

Availability: Out of stock


"Sabino Loffredo made the 2010 Greco di Tufo Greco G only after he was sure he had learned from all his past mistakes. This is the first time this amazing wine has been produced. This excellent vintage provided for perfect growing conditions and Sabino claims that fruit was ripened off the sunlight that was reflected from the clay stones below the vines as well as from above. Sturdy, elegant and unyielding, Greco G delivers a complex bouquet that sees mineral nuances laced between yellow fruit, honey and candied almond. There is a tightness and a compactness to the bouquet that is quite extraordinary. In the mouth, the wine is solid, mineral driven and well delineated by its acidity and its creamy structure. It's balanced acidity shines bright. I'm putting my money on this wine for its promising aging potential. Pietracupa's Greco G has the potential to become one of the defining white wines of Campania. It is an extraordinary effort. Drink :2016-2028. 95+ points.

Sabino Loffredo is a rising star of Campania wines and shows a deft hand at making excellent white wines. We will be hearing more from this man in the future. In addition to his new releases that I have reviewed here, I tasted two older vintages (a 2002 Fiano di Avellino and the 2003 Greco di Tufo). Both wines are outstanding. But nothing blew me away more than the 2010 Greco G Greco di Tufo (that has not been released yet). He only made 2,000 bottle of this delicious wine. Sabino found his winery in 1990 and farms 8.5 hectares of vines. He produces 45,000 bottles each year."
