NovaSerra Greco di Tufo DOCG 2016

The Mastroberardino family has rescued and relaunched the ancient Greco di Tufo vine, which was near extinction. Novaserra, made from rigorously selected grapes, has great organoleptic complexity. The label features details from a painting by De Rosa, which can be found on the ceiling of the winery’s cellar.

Tasting Notes

Deep straw yellow color. Prominent hints of apricot, pear, apple, peach, citrus, green almond, with hints of sage and mineral notes. Good acidity on the palate, mineral, flavours of ripe fruits. Great structure and a distinctive sapidity.

Food Pairing

A good pairing with vegetable soups, white meats, shellfish and elaborated seafood.
