The varietal wines are produced from ancient vines grown on hillside vineyards, many planted on the sides of dormant volcanoes. This assures the grape aromas are not being burned away during the hot summer days. Terredora’s vineyards consist of volcanic soils rich in limestone and clay, and enjoy the southern exposure with an excellent microclimate, on windy hills (400-650 meters above sea level).
The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small baskets with a minimal time span between the removal of the grapes from the stem to the press. A late-ripening, medium-bodied variety from Campania, Greco delivers a relatively high acidity and flaunts an invigorating mineral character alongside fresh citrus, stone fruitand herb flavors. FUN FACT! The name Tufo comes from the soft, volcanic rock found all over in the subsoil of the region where Greco thrives.
