Benito Ferrara

Campania, Italy | website

The Ferrara’s make tiny amounts of Greco di Tufo from 3ha in San Paolo di Tufo, an area they have grown grapes in since 1880. Tufo has long been dominated by large estates who buy all available quality fruit; total production from small estates numbers less than 2000 cases. Ferrara’s vines are planted on steep slopes at 450-600 meters; hand-harvesting is a must and the volcanic soils are rife with chunks of yellow sulphur, which enhances the aromatic character of Greco di Tufo. The reserve bottling, “Vigna Cicogna”, is an astonishingly deep golden hue, with rich tropical fruits on the nose and a textured, persistent palate made effortless by nervy acidity.
