Vento - IGT Campania Greco
Gold yellow, just like its berries when ripe. Acidity and minerality, the main characteristics of my Greco when young. Honey, apricot, almond, petrol notes when aged. Somebody says it’s a red in a white disguise.
Greco is a tricky variety to manage. Packed bunch, thin skin and late maturation make it a perfect peronospera and rot target. Must is rich in catechins and color, therefore inclined to oxidation. We cultivate Greco on Taburno dormant volcano slopes on a clay soil. Given its acidity, I decided to release my Greco only after minimum one year aging in bottle. As often happens, the most complicated son is also the more beloved.
