The Sannio includes the areas of vines on alluvial soils of medium impasto in the province of Benevento, where the capital city has been a crossroads since the time of the Samnites and a fundamental commercial junction between Rome and Brindisi where the consular Appia forked, which identifies, in its south-central part the Taburno area. It is crossed in modern times by the Via Telesina, an important commercial-tourist link. Our wines come from these denomination areas, but mainly derive from the transformation of the grapes coming from the vineyards located at about 400 meters above sea level facing the Telesina valley, on the slopes of the mountain massif of Taburno Camposauro. The soils are mainly of clayey-calcareous nature and the particular microclimate is influenced by Mount Taburno and by the waters of the Calore river.

A wine cellar with 100 years of history just outside the medieval village of Ponte, in the heart of the Sannio that extends to the slopes of Mount Taburno. Telling the territory in which our wines are born means going back a long way in tracing the origins of the enological identity of Campania.

The Campania viticulture was born with the first local populations, Campani and Sanniti, but it developed with the Greek colonization of the VII century BC. which has come in comparison with the Etruscan experiences first and then in Rome, that has enhanced its qualities. The meeting of these cultures determined the breeding choices of the vine and the varieties cultivated even today, as result of the introduction of Greek varieties that have influenced the domestication of those originating in Campania. In particular, among those of oriental origin, we recall the Aglianico, whose name derives from Hellenic, the Greek, while among others we mention Piedirosso, Coda di volpe and Falanghina. The origin of the Fiano is more uncertain and it is attributable according to some to the Peloponnese, according to others to the Italian peninsula (Ligurian or Lazio).

All these varieties can now be called indigenous and are, with good reason, the basis of our production. The quality certificates of our viticulture are illustrious. In particular, Pliny the Old says that the territory of Campania is a lucky land for the mildness of the climate and fertility of the earth and for this it was choosen by Ceres and Bacchus as their home. But unmistakable is the judgment of Marco Valerio Marziale who praises the wines and says that "... the best products come from Campania .. from the vines Falerna, Massiche, and are preserved in old amphorae .." which recalls the characteristics of Aglianico's body and propensity to aging.

To remember the winemaking tradition of our territory, we have identified our wines with names of Greek and Roman origin that refer to the ancient deities of these cultures and to the spiritual symbolism linked to wine. It is a synthesis between the territory and the knowledge of the man who cultivates it and vinifies the fruits of the earth and the sun: in one word it is our terroir.

Three denominations of origin - Aglianico del Taburno DOCG, Falanghina del SannioDOC and Sannio DOC - and a geographical indication (Benevento or Beneventano I.G.T.) that seal the quality of the wines of Sannio. Our winery is part of this panorama, interpreting the characteristics of the vines to provide our wines with an extraordinary identity capable of translating into a unique experience, full of pleasant sensations, every sip.
