Villa Matilde Greco di Tufo 2021


Vila Matilde makes their Greco right in the heart of Irpinia in Campania. They’re a family owned and operated winery that has been around for three generations now. Even better, the family has the luxury of owning three gorgeous estate vineyards that total over 300 planted acres.

They have a unique style in Southern Italy that has set them apart from their peers. As Vinous describes it, “Villa Matilde excels with a wide range of wines. The house style favors textural richness and depth.” Galloni also said that the Greco di Tufo in particular varies from most others because of its “power and intensity.” That’s what you’re looking for in a great Italian white.

The 2021 Villa Matilde Greco di Tufo was brought in last week for me to taste. As is always the case with Greco, I gave it a few minutes to open up in the glass and present its aromatic fireworks. It sure did. This was one of those that I knew was a winner from the very first sip. I even had some of my bartenders try it just to show them how good the varietal can be. This is going to delight people.

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
The nose is delicate, but doesn’t lack subtlety, as the freshness of citrus blossoms and grapefruit mingles with drier aromas of tea leaves and cumin. That balance continues on the palate, where green apples play with camomile, while accelerating acid recalls the citrus of the nose.
