Description

Details

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 this one of the latest regions in Italy to harvest.

Vineyards
The vineyards are situated 450-550 metres above sea level, and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character. Indeed, the name Vesevo is the old name for Vesuvius. Despite being so far south, this is one of the latest regions in Italy to harvest.

Vinification
The flavours obtained in the vineyard are then preserved in the winery. The must is chilled immediately and fermented at 13-14°C rather than the higher fermentation temperatures (18-20°C) prevalent in Italy. The wine remains in stainless steel tank until bottling, sees no oak and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. This results in much purer flavours being captured in the wine.

Tasting Notes
Lemon-gold in colour with an intense, aromatic perfume of ripe pears with a honeyed, almond note. On the palate, this wine has stone fruit flavours of yellow peaches, a crisp, mineral character, a mouth-filling body and good length on the finish.
