On the bright hills of Torre Le Nocelle, Area San Mercurio, a small town in Irpinia, at North- East of the main city Avellino, there are Sertura’s vineyards of Aglianico.
Here, the temperature ranges between day and night and mainly clay soil are perfect to grow red grapes, Aglianico, the most characteristic native vine.
The vineyards are located at approximately 500 m asl, the growing system is Guyot for 4,000 plants per ha.
Aglianico harvest is pretty late, in the first ten days of November, because of the sunny days, that dry out the soil and allow the traditional manual harvest.
Riped in summertime, once bottles the wine spreads suggestive nuances.
