“Azienda Agricola Altura fu giungla oscura e di qual sorta! Rovi ingarbugliati, spine fiorite, arsura facean della vigna una natura viva sì! ma morta...E morte altro non è che ulteriore nuova vita e duratura trasformazione; come la materia che regge il mondo muta, varia, si snatura così la giungla va a fondo e lascia terreno alla coltura.” Francesco Carfagna

Wild Land

The estate was officially founded in 1999 when there was still no trend for indigenous wines and practically no natural wine movement, the grapes grown were from the beginning: Ansonaco and other red varieties such as Sangiovese, Grenache, Canaiolo Nero and Aleatico. At high altura there is a strong focus on wines from red grapes, Francesco tells with great passion that already in 1595 in Andrea Bacci's book "Natural History of Wines" Giglio is mentioned as an area that produces better reds than whites.
Francesco's young vines, are cultivated using the alberello system, terraced on steep slopes that fall sheer to the sea and are immersed in the unspoiled nature of the island, here nothing can be mechanized even if one wanted to, the work is all manual.
