There are some signs of Greco of Tufo in Pompei in a painting which goes back to a century before Christ. It is a wine without equal typicalness, with great appreciations at international level. It is produced in a very limited area, extremely disposed to grapevine cultivation, of the Campania Region. The perfume is intense and persistent. One can recall in the nose clear sensations of fruit.?For the taste, one immediately perceives the broad acidity and the spicy minerality, typical of a vine cultivated in the Tufo area. Immediately following, there are soft notes of balsamic.
