The long ripening season ensures a brilliant, luminous, deep golden colour with flashes of gold and green. An outstanding, elegant and balanced wine with captivating fragrances of white flowers, minerals, citrus, white fruit, pear and apple overlaid by subtle honey. The fine acidity melds well in the richness of the body and in the long aftertaste of mineral and fruit. Food Pairings: Shellfish, grilled fish, water buffalo mozzarella, Thai curry dishes, salmon, sea bass, grilled tuna or lemon-roasted chicken.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Greco di Tufo Loggia della Serra is a vivid, multi-dimensional wine laced with white peaches, minerals, flowers and mint, all of which come together in a beautifully nuanced style. The warmth of the vintage radiates through to the long, creamy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

Wine SpectatorA beauty, focused and fresh, with lively fresh-cut honeydew melon and citrus backed by hints of hot stone and spring herbs on the long, cream-tinged finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases imported.
