2013 Pietracupa Greco di Tufo

SKU #1219609 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Greco di Tufo shows beautiful luminosity and pretty tones of citrus, peach and pear. Fruit is sourced from the Santa Paolina and Prata areas with clay and limestone soils. Harvest ends the first week of October. This is a tonic and balanced effort with impressive fruit brightness and simple, clean lines. It needs another three or four years to flesh out further. (ML)  (4/2015)

90 points Vinous

 Bright straw-yellow. Clean aromas of yellow apple, pear, lime and white pepper. Vibrant, juicy citrus and stone fruit flavors are complicated by salty minerality, with the saline quality carrying through on the tactile, building finish. Much more precise and energetic than Pietracupa’s Fiano from the same vintage - perhaps unsurprisingly, as Pietracupa is one of Italy’s top two or three Greco di Tufo producers. (ID)  (9/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Bright and lightly floral, with snappy acidity driving the flavors of peach skin, star fruit, hazelnut and pink grapefruit. Offers a clean-cut finish, accented by a hint of smoke. Drink now through 2017. (AN, Web-2015)

Greco di Tufo is one of Campania's best known and most important white grapes and Sabino Loffredo of Pietracupa produces one of its greatest expressions. His Greco is structured and long-lived and although he prefers it with several years of age, it is certainly wonderful to drink upon release. An expressive and defined nose of pear, citrus and mineral are complemented by a crisp palate of mineral-driven fruit that pairs especially well with seafood, chicken, vegetables and lighter pastas. For those who love white wine and who've not yet tried Greco di Tufo, prepare to be impressed.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
