Tre Fiori Greco de Tufo

blog 60

I’ve been a fan of this grape since I first visited Italy 20 years ago. In Italy this is an everyday wine, in price at least. £10.99 seems quite expensive – but I enjoyed this wine. ‘DOCG’ means that the wine is tasted by a panel who ‘guarantee’ that it’s worthy of the name, but in my experience this doesn’t guarantee quality at all. The Greco grape is probably Greek in origin, and has been farmed for centuries. The ‘Tufo’ part of the name refers to the volcanic rock which dominates the area Naples.

Tasting notes: Notes of pear and almond. Creamy on the palate, but with balanced acidity.
