Tenuta Russobruno

Tufo, Province of Avellino

Roberta Russo and Marco Bruno purchased an old vineyard in Tufo with one clear goal in mind, to make great Greco. They enlisted Campanian specialist Vincenzo Mercurio and made their first wine in 2013. Today, there are four hectares under vine and the vineyards are all farmed organically.

Greco is one of Italy’s most important grapes and in true Italian style, the grape can also be one of the most confusing, with a number of Greco wines produced throughout southern Italy. But it is in the village of Tufo in Campania where Greco really established its reputation as one of the best whites of the peninsula. The vineyards around Tufo are grown at high altitude – 600 metres at RussoBruno – on volcanic soils and are usually harvested in mid to late October. Compared to its Avellino neighbour, Fiano, Greco is typically more structured and a little higher in alcohol.
