    Greco di Tufo DOCG

    Greco is one of the few white berried varieties to have a high propensity for aging. This ancient and prestigious vine was brought to the province of Avellino by the Pelagi, from Thessaly in Greece, in the first century BC. It was defined by the Romans as "Aminea Gemina", due to the characteristic shape of the cluster divided into two twin parts.
