Greco di Tufo "Nestor" 2015 D.O.C.G. Tenuta Cavalier Pepe

£13.35

The Greco di Tufo grape variety flourishes in the clayey volcanic soils found in the Province of Avellino where the D.O.C.G. is located. The aromas are complex with notes of white fruits, citrus and mineral intemingled and the palate is full, rich and suave with pure fruit as the backbone underpinned by a stoney minerality, making this a superb food partner. Try it with shellfish or sea fish, it works a treat.

The Greco di Tufo vine was cultivated in the south of Italy before Rome was founded and has found its greatest expression in the hills in the Province of Avellino. In the poems of Homer, Nestor is described as a hero of extraordinary physical strength who liked to indulge himself in drinking this nectar. The chalice that he drank from bore the inscription "I am Nestor's cup, it is good to drink from it. Whoever drinks from this cup will be siezed by desire for Aphrodite" You have been warned!!
