ESTATE

In the estates of Lapio and Pietradefuso, Aglianico shows its great versatility.
The Lacrimarosa Irpinia Rosato DOC produced here represents the personality of its chosen land, Irpinia. Management of the vineyards is specifically aimed towards obtaining a rose’ wine with freshness, delicacy and aroma. Mild leaf removal, as usually made on white grapes, is carried out throughout the vineyards in order to not expose the grapes to the sun. A very contained cluster thinning and all other managerial tasks are aimed towards achieving vegetative vigor of the foliage, late growth arrest, and grapes with characteristics closer to white varieties.
