The potential of the volcanic soil sloping down to the sea and the meeting with Riccardo Cotarella, a winemaker of great value particularly sensitive to the recovery and enhancement of Southern wines, led to the birth, in 1994, of a product that aroused incredible emotion in everyone . With a calibrated blend of Aglianico and Piedirosso, also known as “Pere ‘e Palummo” obtained from vineyards exposed to the South West, between four hundred and five hundred meters on the enchanting gulf of Gaeta, the “Terra di Lavoro”, a wine of great structure, suitably aged in small oak barrels.
Since its debut in 1994, Terra di Lavoro has achieved great success with audiences and critics all over the world, consistently credited as one of the best wines in Italy. The vineyards were built on family lands in the municipalities of Galluccio and Sessa Aurunca in the region that was the province of Terra di Lavoro until the early 1900s. The color of the wine is dark and intense. The aromatic panorama ranges from red berries to the balsamic notes of the resin with spicy peaks. The mineral note that has always been the backbone of the Terra di Lavoro is unmissable. The tannins are soft and elegant and the aromatic persistence is long, very long.
