A favorite of our wine experts is Tenuta Cavalier Pepe, an Italian winery known for their Greco di Tufo. This varietal has been cultivated since even before Rome. The hills of Tufo, where these vines originate, are volcanic and offer immense mineral tones. The name Nestor goes back to Greek times; in Homeric’s poems, Nestor is a hero said to have had extraordinary strength and who loved drinking this delicious nectar.
How’s that for an endorsement? A wine long adored even in mythology. The Tenuta Cavalier Pepe Nestor Greco di Tufo is not alone in company on our shelves. We also carry a sister white, Pepe Lila Beneventano Falanghina which is lighter, but still a great match with your favorite shellfish. Another great red wine, Tenuta Pepe Opera Mia Taurasi, offers a bold, beautifully fruit-laced earth. Or try the milder little brother red, Tenuta Pepe Terra del Irpinia Agilianico, for just $13.
