Sitting on a volcanic hill surrounded by lush vineyards and woodlands, Sanpaolo Winery embodies the legacy of a historically rich area with a forward-looking, contemporary vision. Its Greco di Tufo, a treasure among the DOCGs of Italy, is cultivated from selected plots at elevations up to 700 meters, where the dramatic temperature variations intensify its aromatic profile. The soil's unique composition of clay, limestone, sand, and volcanic ashes contributes to the wine's distinctive character.

Tasting Notes and Pairings:

This regal wine presents a straw color with golden highlights, bright and inviting. The nose is greeted with expansive notes of peach, medlar, cedar, and ginger, beautifully accented with hazelnuts, mint, sage, white pepper, vanilla, chalk, and herbal nuances. The palate experiences a structured and enthralling acidity, offering a tastefully balanced and persistent flavor profile. It's an ideal companion to vegetables, delicate first courses, seafood, white meats, and slightly aged cheeses. The perfect pairing? Paccheri with artichokes carbonara.

Rooted in a culture that revered it as a grape of significant value, the Greco varietal's history is as rich as its flavor. Despite the challenges in vinification due to its compact bunch, thin skin, and abundant tannins, the meticulous hand-harvesting and modern, sustainable practices of Cantina Sanpaolo ensure that its legacy continues to flourish. The winery's commitment to sustainability is evident in its energy autonomy, achieved through photovoltaic systems, and minimal energy consumption, thanks to thermal insulation.

A Majestic Journey:

The 2021 'Claudio Quarta' Greco di Tufo DOCG is more than a wine; it is a journey through the heart of Irpinia, capturing the essence of its terroir and the innovation of Azienda Agraria Sanpaolo. Embrace the opportunity to experience this majestic embodiment of history, culture, and winemaking excellence. Allow it to grace your table and illuminate your meals with its regal presence.
