The vine that touches the sky

In a rugged, sun-kissed patch of land grows a vine that is full of history and unique characteristics. Asprinio di Aversa is a white grape variety, traditionally cultivated on the “alberate”, Aversa’s typical tree trellises. The vine attaches to poplar trees, extending its branches up to the sky, reaching up to a height of 20 metres.
The particular type of cultivation gives rise to a wine characterised by a remarkable acidity and a soft citrus aroma, with a very dry taste that is fresh and pleasing to the palate.
An environmental and cultural resource of the area, the “alberate” create green walls, like bright tapestries that enhance the landscape and make it unique.
It is said that Asprinio livened up Pope Paul III Farnese’s warm summer evenings, during his travels in Campania. Saint Lancerio, His Holiness’ cellar master, attested that Pope Paul III Farnese used Asprinio to quench his thirst, and that he would give him a glass before going to sleep.

ASPRINIO D’AVERSA IGP

Scalillo

The “Scalillo” is the long, thin ladder used to harvest the Asprinio grape, which must reach 15-20 metres in height. Each rung is carefully made and adapted to the physicality of the picker. This means each ladder is unique and different from the other, just like the Asprinio wine which is different from anything else you have tried: refreshing, tart and stimulating, and pale yellow in colour blended with a hint of green.

Terramasca

The name Terramasca indicates a typical local expression that refers to the land, which is of volcanic origin. A great deal of the plantations in the Agro Aversano region are made up of this volcanic soil.
It is a name that is harsh and severe, like the land it describes and the character of the people who live there. Men are toughened up by hard work, and the flame of anarchy that characterises the history of these places stays lit inside them. A wild elegance that explodes in the sharp, fresh, sparkling notes of Terramasca.
