Wine maker notes
Grapes are harvested in the second two weeks of October. The must is settled and then fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeasts. The wine is aged on its lees in stainless steel but sees no oak.
It is ideal with hors doeuvres, shellfish, grilled fish dishes, buffalo mozzarella, chicken and cold meat. Serve at 10/12°C.
Since establishing Terredora in 1978, a key cornerstone was the rediscovering and restoration of Campanias ancient and authochthon varieties such as Aglianico, Fiano, Greco and Falanghina. These grape varieties are the main characters that have brought about Campanians wine renaissance.
Innovation is just as vital a key and it is found throughout the winery, in the vineyards and the cellars. A team of experts at Terredora master the challenge of the future while binding it with traditions, bring to life a unique inheritance that combine culture and customs in a lively way.
In 1994, when the business world looked to be pulling the Mastroberardino family in different directions, Terredora decided to take action. A concept was realized that focused on the vineyards and modern technology that strengthened and fostered the avantgarde character of Terredora.
Since 1994, Terredora has solely vinified grapes from our private vineyards. This fundamental step was taken to guarantee the highest quality by controlling all aspects of the grape growing cycle fundamental for producing excellent wines.
