Contra Del Duca
During the years we have been able to identify our best bitter Aglianico vineyard. The selection of its best grapes, left on the plant until the optimal maturation, gives life to our reserve Contra del duca . The vinification is made in steel tanks with native yeasts and a part, in fermentation, is stapled and put in oak barrels of 500 l. After about 12 months, the wine, deriving from fermentation in wood and in steel come back together in oak barrels of 100 l, where they continue their refinement for other 12 months. The bottling, 30 months after the grape harvest, takes place without the previous filtration and it is in the bottle that Contra del Duca continues its evolution. With an enduring and austere chacarcter, this wine makes us proud and, every sip, repay us of the labors done to produce it. Excellent as meditation wine, but also to accompany strong dishes of our cooking, such as: game, stews and meat in general.
