Donnachiara is a family owned and operated winery just outside the boundaries of Montefalcione in Avellino. The origins date back to the turn of the 20th century when Chiara Mazzarelli and the noble surgeon, Antonio Petitto got married and started a new project. Five generations of winemaking later, their legacy lives on stronger than ever thanks to one of the most progressive, state of the art winemaking facilities and arguably the best winemaker in Italy.
Riccardo Cotarella is a winemaking superstar and the most famous and well respected consultant in Italy. Robert Parker’s Jr. himself heaped perhaps the highest praise possible, referring to him as “one of the most influential personalities in the world of wine in the last 20 years.”
During his decades in the industry, Cotarella works has worked with dozens of wineries and countless varietals, but it’s his work with Greco di Tufo in particular where his mastery is on full display, churning out what Wine Spectator calls “clean, modern wines that emphasize fruit”. His Greco di Tufo is all of that and more– fresh and elegant with fragrant citrus notes that unleashes your senses.
94 Points, James Suckling
A tangy and fresh greco with lots of sliced lemon, lime, mineral and stone characters. Medium body. Bright acidity. Vibrant and textured finish with lots of flavor. Drink Now.
