Ortale Greco di Tufo DOCG 2017 - March Cellars
It has an intense straw yellow color with golden reflections. The nose opens wide on floral notes of orange blossom, broom and acacia, to veer towards fresh fruity successions of yellow-fleshed fruit. On the palate it presses with a pleasant acidity that confers a pleasant freshness enriched by soft enveloping sensations and iodine and flint minerals, which give great volume and structure in the mouth. Slightly almondy finish intense, harmonious, long persistence and balance. The wine then rests on the lees for six months to give complexity and structure.

The company that produces this label is Cantine di Marzo
In 2009 the Cantina di Marzo passed into the hands of the current owner, Ferrante di Somma, descended from the maternal grandmother, from the Di Marzo family, giving the company a new imprint, where the philosophy is to strategically target zoning, once to enhance more and more the particularities and uniqueness of the Tufo terroir. The 23 hectares of vineyards of the Greco and Aglianico farm, each with its own specific identity, extend in particular in the San Paolo and Santa Lucia districts and in the municipality of Tufo, at an altitude ranging from 250 to 500m above sea level. The soils are mainly of medium mixture of clay, limestone and, above all, fossil sulfur with which Tufo soils are particularly rich, a characteristic that makes the wines produced here unique.
