Grape selection and oenological competence
Thanks to a particularly favorable microclimate and an extraordinary soil condition, our agronomists have carried out painstaking work in selecting the best vineyards. Modern technological processes and careful oenological knowledge allow us to now make wines that embody the best reinterpretation of millennia of wine tradition enclosed under the name of Lava.
Lava Aglianico Beneventano IGT
The Vesevo vineyards are situated at between 450 and 550 metres above sea level and benefit from the cool breeze blowing off the Bay of Naples. Over the centuries, this breeze has blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character.
Lava Aglianico Taurasi DOCG
Our vineyards are situated at between 500 and 700 meters above sea level, and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character. Fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards of over 40 years old able to give the best expression of Taurasi.
Lava Falanghina Beneventano IGT
The fruit comes from Benevento area. The vineyards are located at 400-600 mt slm with perfect sun exposure and with the soil composition which match three different elements: volcanic, clay and limestone. These aspects are the perfect ingredients to create a wonderful combination of freshness, flavours and bright acidity.
Lava Greco di Tufo DOCG
The wine comes from the perfectly suited area: Avellino. The grapes grows on the seep terraces with perfect exposure to the sun which helps to develop a great balance of aroma and acidity. The soil is mainly volcanic and sandy which gives to the wine also a pleasant touch of minerality.
