Description


The vineyards the Angelo Muto Greco come from are where it all began. This limestone and clay soil is very rich in sulfur, which was mined back in the day, and gives a unique mineral twist to these wines.

Dell'Angelo


Completely surrounded by vineyards, the province of Avellino offers wines of international fame such as Greco di Tufo, Taurus and Fiano di Avellino. The oldest vine of the Irpinia area is definitely the Greco di Tufo which yields the related wine imported from the Greek region of Thessaly by the Pelasgians. Angelo is the third generation engaged between the rows. Bunch of grapes are hand-selected on by one and the must, obtained by soft pressing, is fermented at low temperature, allowing the total conservation of grape aromas. The wine is left to rest in stainless steel containers and bottled just after the natural maturation, with procedures without any artifical acceleration, so as to obtain a product of great quality and unique features. The Muto family works its Greco grapes on five acres of vineyard located right above a part of the old sulfur mines in which up to 900 persons came to work during the 19th century. Angelo's agriculture is a low impact one, just like his father's, very attentive to the health of the soil, rich in sulfur.
