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.

The vineyards are situated between 450-550 metres above sea level and benefit from a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland, giving the soil here a volcanic character rich in minerals and trace elements. This lends a great depth of flavour to the grapes.

Once arrived at the winery, grapes were carefully selected.To maintain the aromatic characters of Falanghina, the must was chilled immediately in order to achieve settling. The settled must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 12-14°C. The wine remained in stainless steel tanks until bottling, with no oak and no malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring took place to impart more flavour and body to the wine.The wine underwent cold stabilisation and filtration before bottling.

Low temperature fermentation has retained the fresh, crisp and aromatic quality of the wine while still allowing its character to shine through. Perfumes of white flowers and white melon with mineral notes provide a backdrop to the full, ripe palate, and lift the finish. An elegant wine, with a lingering touch of honey.

intense wine, very well made
