Back in 1647, Scipione di Marzo, founder of the estate, left San Paolo Belsito to escape the plague that was raging his hometown and found shelter in Tufo. It is said that he brought with him the vines of a variety then called Greco di Nola. After planting it in this new soil, he became the creator of the Greco di Tufo. Since then, the estate has used its own nursery to produce its vines, thus keeping the genetic inheritance practically unchanged since its origins. The di Marzo estate has managed to preserve its historical tradition while using the latest technology. This approach results in a unique quality wines.
Straw yellow with golden hues. To the nose it is complex, with a predominance of flint with notes of orange blossom and wild Mediterranean flowers which evolve into more fruity notes with a very discreet trace of eucalyptus. To the mouth it is very fresh, with a clear and pleasant mineral taste. The aftertaste is fruity and slightly flowery, with citrusy notes. It is a wine with a good structure, intense and persistent.
Its fresh acidity makes it one of the few wines which accompany beautifully our traditional tomato sauce in every form. Ideal with Pizza, pasta with tomato sauce as well as garlic based southern Italian dishes. Also ideal with seafood appetisers, grilled and fried fish such a sea bass or mini tomato bruschetta with baked bocconcini in prosciutto
