GRECO DI TUFO DOCG BY CANTINA SANPAOLO 2015

92 points – Vinitaly International Wine Competition 2016


Bottle Price : $19.95

Case Price : $239.40

Winery : Cantina Sanpaolo

Wine Region : Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Food Pairing : Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat

Deep straw yellow in colour, on the nose this wine has aromatic notes reminiscent of peach, apricot, meadow flowers and chamomile, which are repeated on the robust, fine-grained and highly elegant palate.

Cantina Sanpaolo’s Greco di Tufo is absolutely perfect to have around for the Spring and Summer months. There is plenty of mineral and depth. Greco di Tufo is another one of those Italian grape varietals that does not really receive its due. This is the ultimate match for soft cheeses, prosciutto, a nice piece of salmon off the BBQ and countless other delicious treats. By the way, it also drinks very well on its own.

Campania produces a whole host of great white wines including others such as Fiano and Falanghina. Greco tends to be my favourite and this particular one is delicious with a price that makes it very easy to get behind.

Would you like a great house white for the coming Spring and Summer at a quality to price level that can’t be beat? The 2015 Lopez de Haro Blanco is the best deal i have ever found for a white wine. Yes, it did wine “Best Value White Wine” at the Wines of Spain awards. As Spain has pretty much the best deals on wine of anywhere in the world, this is a pretty big deal. We bought the last of this wine that they had in stock, so when it is gone, it will be gone. I am quite picky about my white wine and i can’t think of a wine anywhere near this price that i would rather spend my money on.

We looked long and hard for the right partnership in California. Yes, there is plenty of California wine out there that is well made and tastes good. The hard task is finding California wines that taste good and has a fair price to match. Scheid Vineyards owns approximately 4000 acres in and around Monterey. This makes them some of the largest vineyard owners in California. This ensures that there is plenty of wine in every vintage and that their pricing remains fair.

Scheid used to sell all their fruit to other winemakers, but a number of years ago, the brain trust at Scheid decided to create and start to market their own brands. All we can say is, what a good idea. Scheid is now producing some of the best quality to price ratio wines to come out of California and the Ryder Chardonnay is no exception. We have not been able to find any California Chardonnay close to this good at under $20/bottle. To view the balance of the wines from Ryder that are currently in stock, or close to it, click here.

It’s Sunday and the sun is out. Take a few moments to ensure you have the right wines in stock for the Spring and Summer months.

Have a great day!
