Mastroberardino - Nova Serra Greco Di Tufo - Campania
Overview: The Mastroberardino family, leaders in Italian viticulture, are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII. Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of Southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania’s ancient, native varietals, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct grapes into world class varieties.
Rigorous research into the Greco grape variety by the Mastroberardino family and replanting this once forgotten white in carefully selected vineyards, has led to the development of Nova Serra Greco di Tufo, an iconic wine of the estate. Featured on the label is a reproduction of a Raffaele De Rosa painting, featured on the vaults of Mastroberardino’s historic cellar.
Tasting Notes: Deep straw yellow. Scents of apricot, pear, apple, peach, citrus fruits, and green almonds are followed by subtle notes of sage minerals. Bright acidity carried ripe fruit flavors across the palate. This wine has excellent structure.
Pairing: Pair with white fish.
