The Greco di Tufo grape is somewhat lesser known, but we love it for its fruit, sturdy body, and gorgeous acidity. The Feudi di San Gregorio Greco di Tufo is no exception. It's pert and delicious, with lovely acidity and minerality. Translation: crazy food friendly. Work on those first glasses with a platter of your favorite sushi. Fried calamari is another great option. Or, if you've got some time on your hands,  make it stuffed, deboned chicken wings stuffed with basil, bread crumbs, parmesan and lemon zest. Roasted pork belly with roasted fennel will shine opposite this San Gregorio; the acidity and zing of the wine is perfect for the rich pork belly. A seafood pasta with fresh herbs, a little garlic and a splash of cream works well too. Crisp-roasted chicken with tangerine and lemon slices, garlic and rosemary in the cavity will have them coming back to refill their glasses again and again. What looks good to you winelovers?

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
:  "The 2017 Greco di Tufo is a generous and abundant white wine. This Greco usually undergoes partial malolactic fermentation (usually about 30% of the total mass), but this vintage saw no malolactic fermentation at all. The wine evidently had enough natural creaminess and richness created by the hot and dry conditions of the growing season. You do get a lot of texture here with fragrant tones of peach, apricot and baked apple. Surprise, surprise: the 2017 vintage is proving to be a great one for the Greco grape. You can't beat this fantastic value. Drink date: 2018 - 2022."  Dec 2018

Winery:  "The perfume is intense and persistent. One can recall in the nose clear sensations of fruit. For the taste, one immediately perceives the broad acidity and the spicy minerality, typical of a vine culitvated in Tufo. Immediately following, there are soft notes of balsamic. Drink with raw fish, bufala mozzarella and first courses of white meats."
