Quintodecimo Greco di Tufo Giallo d'Arles 2022

95+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner (2021 vintage)
"The Greco grape is naturally rich in pigments, and when it reaches full maturity, the grape takes on a golden color with amber highlights. That is the inspiration behind the wine's name, which evokes the yellow color so adored by painter Vincent van Gogh in Arles, France. The 2021 Greco di Tufo Giallo d'Arles is smooth, elegant and representative of the enormous white-wine potential found in Campania. The bouquet offers orchard fruit, white rainier cherries and a terpenic note that Luigi Moio goes to great lengths to preserve. There is also a pronounced floral tone of jasmine or tuberose that he says is specific to this vintage. This is an exhilarating wine."

Our Tasting Note: Med+ lemon yellow verging into gold in color. Med+/pronounced nose and palate. Summer peach, nectarines, quince, meyer lemon curd, with a good mineral core, a tang of saline, something you don't see in Greco too much. Med+ density is striking, but fresh, linear in a dense way. Med acidity. Long, persistent finish, the longest of the 3 (it should).
