Reviews
• Vinous / Ian D’Agata: 93 Bright medium yellow. Ripe banana, peach, custard cream and marzipan on the nose and in the mouth. Fresh and ripely tannic on the long, suave finish. A much more refined version of Greco wine than is normally encountered, but owner Luigi Moio has showcased an uncanny and unique talent with this grape variety over the years. Yet another standout Greco di Tufo from the Quintodecimo estate. Well done.
