greco di tufo d.o.c.g.
terre degli angeli
Made with selected Greco grapes from Terredora’s own vineyards in Santa Paolina, set against the incomparably beautiful natural scenery of Castelmozzo. It was here that the first 8 hectares were purchased in 1978, starting the rebirth of winegrowing in this particularly vocational province. If the Angels ever brought the earth closer to heaven, only these vineyards could be the Lands of Angels. The harmonious combination of this ancient Greek grape, the chalky-limestone soil and environment of this hilly site are ideal for giving "Terre degli Angeli” elegance and personality. This special selection of Greco di Tufo stands out not only for its minerality but also its complexity, accompanied by acidity that enhances its very agreeable character.
