Sphaeranera 2019 Roccamonfina IGT
Pallagrello Nero slender but at the same time deep. Rustic, as the grape variety wants, with wild and savory traits. A mineral savoriness that tells us of a vocated territory such as Roccamonfina: with volcanic soil, temperature ranges, exposures.
A taut and vertical wine, which in the mouth from green and vegetal sensations opens into a very vivid and juicy fruity range, long finish where the saline sensation returns. A wild elegance, two characters for one soul, that of the territory.
We are in Teano, in Alto Casertano, at the foot of the extinct volcano of Roccamonfina. Diana Iannacone, agronomist and Mario Basco now run the farm following the dictates of biodynamic agriculture. The vineyard occupies 9 hectares, divided into several plots located in Cacciagalli and Aorivola localities.
An authentic interpretation of the typical vines of the area through the peculiarities that the territory offers, traced unequivocally by the activity of the extinct volcano of Roccamonfina: altitudes from 200 to 300 meters above sea level, with rows all facing east, on soils of volcanic nature, loose, sandy-calcareous and with good organic substance.
Only indigenous grape varieties Aglianico, Piediorosso, Pallagrello Nero, Falanghina and Fiano are grown. Almost all wines are aged in amphora, with more or less long maceration on skins and strictly spontaneous fermentations, no clarification and filtrations, or any addition of additives.
