Pietracupa was founded in 1990 and is situated in Montefredane, near Avellino, a mountainous terrain where elevation is key in producing wines with great character. Here the young and talented Sabino “Sammy Bruno” Loffredo quickly gained a reputation within Italy and abroad, for some of the best Greco and Fiano wines around. Pietracupa wines represent his style and his idea of the wine world. He is one of the most successful examples of how a small producer can produce great wines that also have wonderful ageing potential and become magnificently complex in the bottle.
Greco by Pietracupa has a light, bright and intense straw yellow colour. An exemplary & complex tapestry of rare and delicate aromas: hedgerow, nectarines, kumquats, ferns, sage, white pepper and ginger. In contrast to the gentle nose, the palate has few rivals for flavour and energy with an overwhelming savoury-acid grip. Its long trajectory ends in an irrepressible glow of citron and white peaches.
