Description

Wine:
"This ancient variety, originally introduced to Italy from Greece at the time of the Romans, is a generous performer in Puglia. Not planted as much here as in the Campania, if grown at reasonably low yields, this wine confirms that Greco is just as much at home in the sunny vineyards of Cerignola than in the better known Greco di Tufo DOCG. Pear upfront, with increasing pineapple tones, though smooth and elegant in the mouth feel and bright finish." - Importer

Torre Quarto:
"If you want extreme, come to Puglia. It's here where the Italian sun shines its brightest and where agriculture is at its most abundant. In the terra rossa - Puglia's iron-rich red clay soils - gigantic olive trees provide large circles of shade and vineyards line each picturesque vista."

"The sultry south is home for Torre Quarto, owned by the Farussi family who have made wine here, off and on, for generations. More than a hundred years ago, the estate sold grapes to Bordeaux winemakers, as did many southern Italian winemakers with large crops and dense, concentrated grapes. Times weren't always so good for the family, however. Years of overproduction and frivolous spending almost turned the estate over to the bank. Yet Stefano Cirillo Farrusi, the youngest grandson of the original owner, stepped in to rescue Torre Quarto. He hired enologist Cristoforo Pastore to help isolate the estate's most suitable vines and focus overall on the best local, and unusual grape varietals." - Importer
