About the Producer
The name Vesevo is the historic name for Vesuvius. The vineyards are located in the Irpinian hills of Campania, potentially one of Italy's most exciting wine producing areas. Despite being so far south, there are large differences here between day and night temperatures, making the harvest here one of the latest in Italy.
Vineyard and Winery
The vineyards are situated near the towns of Tufo and Torrioni, in the heart of Greco di Tufo D.O.C.G. area. Vineyards are at 450-550 metres above sea level, and are subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character. The climate is temperate with a large diurnal difference between night and day temperatures.
Once arrived at the winery, grapes were carefully selected. The flavours obtained in the vineyard were preserved in the winery. The must was chilled immediately and fermented in stainless-steel tanks at 12-14°C. The wine remained in stainless-steel tanks until bottling, seeing no oak and not undergoing malolactic fermentation resulting in purer fruit flavours being captured in the wine.
