From a family cellar in Campania, this white has delightful honeyed pear and lemon fruit – a wine brimming with character. The grape is Greco di Tufo, Greek in origin, but today it's decidedly Italian. In fact it’s one of Italy’s finest. A real star.
Alongside the likes of Pinot Grigio, Italy produces outstanding whites from a plethora of unique grapes like Greco, known as Greco di Tufo in Campania. This crisp, apple and lemon scented wine comes from the Irpinian hills near Naples. The region’s microclimate is ideal for cultivating vines. At 500 metres altitude and with cooling sea breezes, the vineyards here can be among the last harvested in Italy. Poor volcanic soils means yields are kept low, too. Vesuvium is an outstanding wine from a small family property owned by two brothers, who work hard in this inhospitable terrain to produce their intensely characterful, elegant wines. With hints of pear, almond and citrus fruits, this is a white to savour with vegetarian and seafood dishes.
"Lovely. Really smooth, easy drinking and goes with anything"
