This Greco has a lemon-gold colour. The nose opens with an intense, aromatic perfume of ripe pears with a honeyed, almond note. On the palate, it has stone fruit flavours of yellow peaches, a crisp, mineral character, a mouth-filling body and good length on the finish.
The vineyards are situated 450-550 metres above sea level, and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a volcanic character.
The name Vesevo is the historic name for Vesuvius. The vineyards are located in the Irpinian hills of Campania, potentially one of Italy's most exciting wine producing areas. Despite being so far south, there are large differences here between day and night temperatures, making the harvest here one of the latest in Italy.
