Exclusively made from selected Aglianico grapes from the oldest vineyard of the estate.

STARSETA

Starseta is the ancient vine training system typical of Irpinia. The vines are placed at a distance of about four meters from each other, forming contiguous quadrants. Each corner of the quadrant accommodates up to four vines, whose woody stems rise up to 2 meters in height, supported by wooden posts or fruit trees. The branching canes extend horizontally, intertwining two meters above the ground, supported by wire trellises and fastened with willow ties.

The vineyard work is mainly done by hand with the support of traditional wooden three-legged ladders, as in the past.
