"Montevetrano has a recognizable style, characterized by complexity, like the territory in which it is born".

Soil Specificity

The soils in Campania are extrusive igneous rocks. The main soils are soils with more or less derived from volcanic materials, then one can find some soils with clay and iron oxides accumulation, or even alluvial soils. Campania is unique in that many of its vines are planted on their own rootstocks. Phylloxera pest simply cannot survive in Campania’s volcanic soils.

History / Ethos

The Montevetrano history begins in 1983 with friends, among them Silvia Imparato and Riccardo Cotarella. After six years, they produced their first bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon 90% and Aglianico 10%, the first vintage of a wine that will adopt the same name of the castle: Montevetrano. Today Montevetrano is a 26 hectares estate about 5 of these are vineyards), in the Monti Picentini Regional Park, in southern Italy. The vineyards are in San Cipriano Picentino, in a former Bourbons’ estate, 100 meters above sea level.
