2022 Greco di Tufo, Lapolli, Campania

£15.75 inc. VAT

One of our biggest selling white wines this year – if you haven’t tasted it yet then snap it up as it sells out as quickly as it arrives.

This is a seriously gorgeous Italian white that recently wowed the judges at the Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards. There are times when certain awards can be taken with a pinch of salt, however when a wine is rated as the top Italian white in the whole of Italy (yes, the entire country!) then you take notice – especially when it costs a fraction of the price of the runner up.

The Lapilli Greco di Tufo is bursting with white peach and apricot fruit along with tantalisingly fresh minerality. The vineyard is at an altitude of 450m and this elevation allows the grapes to slowly reach optimum ripeness by the end of October when they are harvested by hand. The soil here also has a high level of limestone which gives the wine extra complexity. After fermentation, the wine has three months in tank ageing on its lees and then further ageing in bottle.

This is an absolute belter of a wine for the money with so much going on. Along with the lovely stone fruit you have touches of pear, almond and sage and all so beautifully balanced. Offering it at £15.75 per bottle, Songbird Wines is the cheapest on the UK market.
