Stilèma Greco di Tufo DOCG 2017
A Greek that recalls the stylistic features of the great Irpinia whites of the 70s and 80s which marked the consecration of a territorial style and which, at the same time, offers characters of great modernity and extraordinary organoleptic richness. Stilèma Greco di Tufo is the result of an assembly of grapes from the estates of Montefusco, Tufo and Petruro Irpino. In the cellar work, particular attention was paid to the malolactic fermentation and the aging phase, which give the wine density and consistency.

- In Legno
The Mastroberardino family has lived in the socio-cultural context of wine for over two centuries, based on the most reliable historical reconstructions.
The first traces of its presence in Irpinia date back to the Bourbon land registry, in the mid-eighteenth century, when the family chose the village of Atripalda as its headquarters, where the ancient cellars are still located, and from there originated a lineage that linked indissolubly their fate to the cult of wine.
Ten generations, since then, have led the family business, amidst ups and downs, as always happens in the stories of family businesses of more ancient origin.The family estates are located in Irpinia, cradle of three DOCGs: Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino and Taurasi, distributed in the various areas of the territory with the aim of preserving their identity and ensuring their protection.
