Antica Hirpinia Greco di Tufo

Wine Description

The story began in 1959 with the foundation of the first winery in Taurasi. Today, Antica Hirpinia is a private cellar, led by a group of friends who took over it in 2016 to realize a common dream: to produce the finest wines in the area. Their first step was to appoint Riccardo Cotarella as their enologist and Valeria Cesari as their consultant.

Tasting Notes

Powerful and vibrant, this wine is rich of crispy white fruit and intense yellow flowers. Saltiness and acidity are very high while remaining round and graceful.

Food Pairings

White meats, vegetable dishes, and shell fish. Excellent with Thai food.
