greco di tufo d.o.c.g.

loggia della serra


From selected plots of Greco grapes grown in Terredora vineyards in Montefusco. Loggia della Serra is the name of the scenic view from Serra surrounded as far as the summit by rows of Greco vines stubbornly pushing their roots deep into the ground before sprouting upward. The harmonious combination of this ancient Greek vine, the chalky limestone soil inhospitable to more lavish crops and the environment of these high hill sites - about 600 meters above sea level – ensure that Loggia della Serra achieves rich complexity and personality. Exuberant and embracing, it is a selection that focuses considerably on the minerality for which Greco is famous, as well as its power and fruity character.

 
about wine

Grape Variety: 100% Greco.

Production Area:family-owned vineyards in Montefusco.

Winemaking: the grapes are harvested at the end of October, given the high altitude of the vineyards. The must is left to settle and fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures. It is aged on its lees for several weeks.

Tasting Notes: the long period of ripening ensures a bright, deep golden color with greenish hues. An outstanding, elegant and balanced wine with intriguing fragrances of white flowers, citrus fruit, pear and apple overlaid by subtle honey and an agreeable mineral sensation. The fine acidity merges well with the rich body and the long mineral and fruity aftertaste.

Food Pairings: shellfish, grilled fish, buffalo mozzarella, Thai curry dishes, salmon, sea bass, grilled tuna and lemon-roasted chicken.

Best served at 10°-12°C.
