Petilia, Greco di Tufo DOCG (Campania, Italy) 2019

($22, Dark Star Imports):  Greco di Tufo is one of Italy’s great white wines and justifiability deserves its DOCG designation.  The volcanic Campanian soil and the region’s climate allow the grape to shine.  The emphasis of Petilia’s 2019 is on a lava-like minerality rather than fruitiness.  It has good weight and a saline-like acidity that amplifies its charms. It grows in the glass, so it’s a wine to savor with a meal.  And any kind of seafood should be a part of that meal when drinking it.
