Sabbie di Sopra il Bosco, Terre del Volturno
Sabbie di Sopra il Bosco, The Sandy Fields Above the Woods, is a single vineyard.
The main grape is Pallagrello Nero, a late variety with a thick skin, austere, characterized by ultra-fine tannins, which produce wines of strong personality. Aglianico contributes structure and acidity to the wine. Both varieties are complemented by a small share of Casavecchia from centuries old un-grafted vinestocks, in the region of Ponteleone.
