  • Located on the slopes of Mount Vulture, this land is rich in vineyards, chestnuts and olive trees. With soils fertile in silicon and potassium, along with wide diurnal ranges and rigorous grape selection during the harvest that creates the most structured and complex wines from his old vineyards (approximately 40 years) of Aglianico. It is this wonderful landscape where Camerlengo is located giving us a divine splendor of his vines.

    These vines are aged from 10-15 years planted to volcanic limestone soils in the vineyard called “Vigna Toppo du Avuzzo” that is around 300m high. The grapes are hand-harvested in early-October, fermented in chestnut oak (30-50L) for 15 days and aged for 15 months in old barrels (30/40/50 HL).Unfiltered.

    Tasting Notes: Dark ripe fruits; liquored violet; distinct
    volcanic minerality
