Owned by the Zampaglione clan from the Tenuta Grillo estate, Il Tufiello is comprised of 2.5ha (6200 vines). The family decided to return to their roots in Calitri (Avellino) to create a true expression of the Fiano grape. The production is based on low yields, scrupulous selection of the grapes, respect for nature and traditions. The wines reflect the naturalness and the characteristics of the land, the vines and the year.
A white wine for lovers of skin contact. This is golden-amber in colour from being raised in an open vat, cloudy in the glass, and has seen very little sulphur. The nose comes alive with fresh green notes, aromatic yellow fruits, and dried herbs. The palate is round and full of citrusy, lemon intensity finishing with a hint of tannin.
