Campania may be home to the finest whites in Italy, and Greco di Tufo is arguably the best white of Campania, both for its structure – the finest examples display amazing complexity after 7-10 years – and their distinct minerality. I’ve rated the Pietracupa Greco di Tufo as the best white of Italy for several years, but I’ve recently tasted the Greco di Tufo from Petilia that is as pure and as harmonious. Sabino Loffredo and Teresa Bruno, respectively, are the driving forces behind these two wines, and while both make extremely limited examples of Greco (“G” for Pietracupa, “Quattro Venti – 4 20” for Petilia), I decided to list their classic offerings.
The “Herzu” Riesling of Ettore Germano is from high elevation vineyards in the Alta Langa zone. Proprietor Sergio Germano each year delivers a sumptuous dry Riesling with heavenly perfumes of jasmine, lime and orange blossom; the 2015, 2016 and 2017 versions were all first-rate, while the new 2018 is as charming and as beautifully structured as ever; it may be the best yet!
Three versions of Fiano di Avellino here – all powerful, all superb, and all great reprsentations of Fiano. The Pietracupa is the most refined, the Diamante the most dynamic, the Sarno, the most aristocratic. Each wine has notable cellar potential.
The Il Colombaio Santa Chiara Vernaccia di San Gimignano is as rich, complex and as focused an example of this wine type I have ever tried – simply perfect!Fonte: Tom Hyland - Forbes
