Benito Ferrara Greco di Tufo DOCG Terra d’Uva 2022, Campania, Italy

The fourth generation of the Ferrara family, Gabriella Ferrara and husband Sergioare are now at the helm. They have 12.5 hectares under vine at 450-600 meters above sea level in calcareous clay soil of volcanic origin, with chunks of yellow sulfur marking the surface of the yellow-tinged soils. 100% Greco from the district of San Paolo. Vines range from 5 to 60 years old. Eastern exposure. 500 meters above sea level. Soft pressing of the fruit is followed by fermentation and maturation in stainless steel for 7 months before. The 2022 Greco di Tufo Terra d’Uva opens in the glass with a bouquet that blends fresh mint with kiwi and candied lime. It’s soft and round with cooling acidity and crisp orchard fruits that find a lovely contrast through an air of sweet inner florals. This finishes dry yet fresh, leaving a mineral tinge and a pleasantly bitter sensation that calls the taster back to the glass.
