White wine produced only with Greco grapes from three different vineyards located in as many municipalities in the province of Avellino and precisely: Montefusco, Tufo and Altavilla Irpina.
Bunches are harvested manually and transported to the cellar in small boxes to avoid crushing the berries. Grapes are subjected to a soft pressing of whole bunches to obtain the flower must. The vinification and aging on the fine lees for 4 months takes place entirely in steel vats.

Color: intense and compact straw yellow
Nose: typical of altitude wines, green apple, jasmine, cedar and wild honey scents. A well-integrated mineral and mentholated note in the background. The young wine has primary aromas which after 5/10 years evolve into fascinating puffs of hydrocarbons
Palate: full and fresh mouth. The finish is long and persistent with very evident sapidity.
Recommended pairings: perfect for risotto and white meats. Great for fish or smoked meats. Good match even with blue cheese after a few years of aging
Dishes to match: lentil and prawn soup; baked turbot with potatoes; fish soup, artichoke risotto; seared tuna; fried octopus; cod “alla pertecaregna”
