Greco di Tufo "VIGNADANGELO" DOCG Mastroberardino
If we have a look on the past history of the variety Greco di Tufo, we can discover and understand a lot of things. Without the patient work of recovery done by Antonio Mastroberardino, the selection “Vigna d’ Angelo” and a long research on the composition of the soils, this variety would not exist anymore. This wine enhances the denomination “Greco di Tufo DOCG” and it is produced 100% with the local grapes.
The vineyard rises in Santa Paolina, 400 meters on the sea level, with a south-west orientation and a soil rich of clay and limestone. The espalier with Guyot training produces, with its 3500 stumps, around 70 quintals per hectare. The vineyard is 15 years old and its harvest is managed manually in the first half of October. The wine making process is the classic white one, with steel containers and controlled temperature. The aging in the bottle lasts at least one month.
