The Greco variety was originally cultivated on the slopes of Vesuvius, where it was given the name Lacryma Christi. It was later planted in the province of Avellino, where it was given the denomination Greco di Tufo. The refined personality of the wine is in sharp contrast with the wild nature of the Irpinia, where it is made. This contrast is the result of the area’s dedication to simplicity which has been refined by years of winemaking. “Loggia della Serra” is the name of the vineyard in Montefusco at 600 m above sea level. It means “terrace on the vineyards”.
