The Greco di Tufo Vadiaperti is a wine with a rich taste. Its good level of acidity maintain this wine fresh and sharp. Tough, contrast and flavor are the most distinctive features of this product by Raffaele Troisi. In this Greco di Tufo, behind an apparent rough start, you can catch the most subtle and elegant vibrations of fruity-mineral character, typical of this grape variety.
The winery Vadiaperti was one of the first wineries that made famous the hill Montefredane, imposing it as a reference area for the Fiano di Avellino. An adventure that began in the mid-eighties, today under the helm of Raffaele, son of Professor Antonio Troisi. A project the one of Vadiaperti always played on the stylistic consistency and never follow fads or approvals: flavor, freshness, originality of expression and personality are the characteristics that Vadiaperti tries to recreate in each wine.
The winery can count on six hectares of vineyards and has always pursued the enhancement of local vines minimal human intervention. The main body, which develops around the winery, is on the hill of Montefredane. On a clay soil is planted Fiano, while the Greco is in the wine district of Montefusco, 600 meters above sea level. The mild Mediterranean climate, the volcanic origin of the soil and its tuffaceous characteristics make this area highly suited for viticulture. The love for the land and the respect for the traditions have led Raffaele to the creation of wines of great depth and personality, whose elegance and finesse is perfectly balanced with aromas and scents; capturing the essence of Campania.
