BACKGROUND

The Mastroberardino family, leaders in Italian viticulture, are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII. Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of Southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania’s ancient, native varietals, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct grapes into world class varieties.

Rigorous research into the Greco grape variety by the Mastroberardino family and replanting this once forgotten white in carefully selected vineyards, has led to the development of Nova Serra Greco di Tufo, an iconic wine of the estate. Featured on the label is a reproduction of a Raffaele De Rosa painting, featured on the vaults of Mastroberardino’s historic cellar.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

The Montefusco vineyard is dedicated solely to the production of Nova Serra Greco di Tufo. It has a South-East exposure, with clay-calcareous soil and traces of volcanic ash along the profile. Positioned 550m a.s.l., the vines are Cordon Spur-pruned and Espalier-trained, with a plant density of 4,000 vines/ha and a yield of about 6,000 kg/ha (1.5kg/vine). The vines have an average age of 15 years.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Manual harvest takes place at the end of October. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Refinement in bottle for three to four months before release.

TASTING NOTES

Deep straw yellow. Scents of apricot, pear, apple, peach, citrus fruits, and green almonds are followed by subtle notes of sage minerals. Bright acidity carried ripe fruit flavors across the palate. This wine has excellent structure.
