Cantina Sanpaolo, Greco di Tufo DOCG (Campania, Italy) 2017

($20, Enotec Imports, Inc):  Greco di Tufo, one of Italy’s premier white grapes, is rarely found outside its home in Campania.  Sanpaolo’s is an excellent example, full-bodied, yet crisp.  It is mineral-infused, reflecting the lava-like residue of Vesuvius.  Its acidity imbues it with energy and magnifies its charms.  This substantial white has a real presence on the table and would be a good choice for grilled swordfish or fettuccine with a clam sauce.
