Details

Greco di Tufo Miniere Cantina dell'Angelo, natural wine, 100% Greco Bianco, wild yeast, citrus and minerals. A delicious example of this lesser known and smallest of Campania's DOCGs. Greco di Tufo lies around around the small village of Tufo in the hills just inland from Naples. There are only a handful of producers and not many making natural wine. Angelo's 5 hectares lie on a hillside above an ancient sulphur mine and the terroir imparts a distinctive minerality and slightly smokey note to the intense citrus fruits. Often thought to be a chunky white, the Greco from Angelo is far more elegant and a delicious wine for white fish or oyster.

Angelo Muto looks like your stereotypical southern Italian wine farmer. His small stubby cigar permanently hangs from his mouth, his low gravelly voice and serious demeanour can make you feel uneasy at first. But when he cracks a smile, the serious demeanour vanishes to reveal a warm, friendly guy with a great sense of humour and passion for his work. His approach to his work is totally natural and artisan. He works the vines with his father and employs help in the winery from his close friend and fellow wine maker Luigi Sarno from Cantina del Barone in Avellino. What makes Angelo's 5 hectares of Greco vineyard unique is its location above an abandoned Sulphur mine over 100 metres down below the hillside. The vines are between 400 and 600 metres above sea level with many over 35 years of age. The oldest vineyard called Torrefavale has some vines nearly 100 years old and is located directly above the mine. You can see clearly the make up of the volcanic 'Tufo' soil which has a mix of clay and limestone with chunks of chalk, quartz, and yellow striations of elemental sulfur, remnants of the ancient mine below. This special terroir imparts incredible minerality to the wine, subtle smokey notes, intense citrus flavours and subtle notes of herbs and white flowers (also abundant in the vineyard) and creates a Greco di Tufo with exceptional elegance and freshness. Although a humble artisan, Angelo's wine have a certain intellectual complexity to them, they are easy to enjoy on their own yet would match well with some fine seafood dishes.
