Fattoria La Rivolta
In the early twentieth century, the agricultural company was born from the passion of grandparents Giovanni and Teresa. Combining their strengths and acquiring new land in the Ciurica, Rivolta and Roseto districts, they created one of the largest and most productive farms in the province of Benevento.
The 120 hectare property was later distributed among their eight children. In 1991 two brothers, Mario and Bruno, decided to combine their land in a common management; and “Ciurica s.n.c.” was born.
Later in 1997, working with Paolo; a third generation farmer, the “Fattoria La Rivolta” brand was born. Working with sisters Giovanna and Gabriella and cousin Giancarlo they were able to restructures the vineyard and the cellar.
Approximately 29 hectares of the hilly, calcareous-clay land is planted with vines and hand harvested to produce low yields without the use of chemical treatments. Biological methods have been utilized since 1997, earning them an organic certification by ICEA.
The grapes belong to the doc Taburno or Sannio, planted around vertical trellis with guyot pruning system or cordon pruning. The grapes harvested on the farm are, white falanghina grape, coda di volpe, fiano and greco; red grapes are aglianico and piedirosso.
The winery is quipped with the most modern appliances, and divided into two structures. The first purely technical for the vinification and the atra, located inside the ancient farm, where the aging and bottling of wines takes place.
