94 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2018

Intensely bright and focused, the 2016 Greco di Tufo Giallo d'Arles shows a zesty but finessed side to this beautiful white variety from Southern Italy. There is hidden complexity here that you only fully become aware of once you've had the opportunity to contemplate the wine in your glass for a few long minutes. Primary aromas of pear and preserved lemon emerge first, but they are followed by delicate notes of crushed oyster shell, zesty ginger and cinnamon. Some 27,666 bottles were produced.

Luigi Moio makes some of the very best wines you will taste from Campania. This is a benchmark estate for the region and indeed for the country. After gaining his master's and PhD in agricultural science, with prolonged research in Burgundy, Professor Moio established this estate in 2001 in Irpinia. Today, it counts 30 hectares of land, including 22 hectares that are planted to vines. I absolutely recommend these excellent and exciting new releases from Quintodecimo. The estate produces six wines: three reds and three whites. All are truly excellent, as you can gather from my enthusiastic mid-90s scoring across the board.
