The family business originates in Paternopoli, a small village dating back to pre-Roman times, nestled on the gentle and green hills of the southern Apennines at over 400m above sea level. within the "Taurasi" DOCG. In the three hectares of pre-phylloxera vineyards conducted in a bio-sustainable regime, the Company produces, with manual harvest, Aglianico and Fiano-based wines. The clayey limestone soil, the strong excursions between day and night, the hills covered with old vines and new plants, the perfect balance between climate, grape variety and soil, represent the ideal setting for our vineyards. The vineyards, located between 450 and 530 meters above sea level, with some of the plants over 70 years old, are the main pieces of a corporate mosaic that favors quality over quantity while respecting the environment. Careful management in the field, with severe winter pruning, topping, leaf removal and thinning, allows for healthy and ripe purple clusters to be harvested between the end of October and the beginning of November. The magic of the harvest, carried out by hand and selecting the best grapes, allows you to bring the soul of the wine to the cellar.
