|Sabino Lofreddo could very well be making the best Greco di Tufo in Campania. My first taste was the 2008 vintage. It was this wine, this vintage that turned my attention from Fiano (di Avellino) to Greco as a wine built to last. Ability to age ranks it amongst other age-worthy whites – Burgundy, for example – and with advanced age, often comes close to showing a Chablis-like profile, if one had to compare.
Only a little more than a decade in the making, Pietracupa’s Grecos are intense upon release (expect his to show intense smoke and fruit – no oak!), yet promise to deliver nuance and finesse over the long term. The wine carries such profound weight and aromatics that one feels the whole of Irpinia has been upturned, liquified, and bottled. – Melissa S., Wine Buyer
