Why we love it
A fine Greco di Tufo fermented at low temperatures for pure flavours – scented yet dry, with a lovely texture and subtle flavours.

Tasting notes
Bright straw yellow in colour. On the nose, intense fruity aromas of ripe pears with a honeyed, almond note. The palate is well-balanced with stone-fruit flavours of yellow peaches, a crisp, mineral character and good length on the finish.

Food pairing
Pairs well with a tomato and caper pasta sauce, seafood, fried fish or soft cheeses.

Additional information
The name Vesevo is the historic name for Vesuvius. The vineyards are located in the hills of Irpinia in Campania. Despite being so far south, there are large differences between day and night temperatures, making the harvest there one of the latest in Italy.

The grape must was chilled and fermented in stainless-steel tanks at 12 to 14°C (rather than the higher temperatures prevalent in Italy). The wine remained in stainless-steel tanks until bottling, seeing no oak and not undergoing malolactic fermentation, resulting in purer fruit flavours being captured in the wine.
