Greco di Tufo is a clone of Greco Bianco. It ripens late, enjoying the Mediterranean climate and long, warm growing season of Southern Italy. Greco di Tufo is named after the tiny town of Tufo in Avellino, Campania. The name Tufo is derived from “tuff;” the soft, volcanic rock that makes up the subsoil of the region. This distinctive soil is thought to impart a particular minerality to the wine flavor profile. Greco di Tufo wines tend to show a dark lemon or gold color, darker than many white wines. Though not overly aromatic, Greco di Tufo wines are known to show characteristics of spice, herb and citrus. On the palate, the wines are medium- to full-bodied and relatively high in acidity. Flavors will range from citrus, white fruit and stone fruit, and top examples will have a distinctive mineral character.
