Tre Fiori Greco di Tufo DOCG 2014
A truly unique wine that harvests some of Italy’s most expressive character.
This dry, full-bodied white wine made from the fairly unknown Greco grapes grown in Campania, looks very light and pale yellow in the glass. It’s clean; there’s no legs and just a tinge of green.
On the nose it’s a beauty. Tropical fruits, apricots and pineapples with a buttery oak note. A bouquet of fruits.
Following through on the palette and the dominant sensation is a unique “creamy pineapple” flavour and texture. There’s also some vivacity with the wine’s citrus acidity and lemon notes, although this is pleasantly rounded making it an ideal partner with food.
A very drinkable white wine.
Currently selling at £10.99 via Waitrose Cellar (75cl, 30 Sept 2015).
So, so drinkable. Creamy pineapples and tropical stone fruits; this wine is unique.
