Produced with sustainability at the heart of every decision. Originally formed by 33 members in 1960, La Guardiense winery has since flourished and now boasts around 1000 members making it one of the largest in Italy! Operating from Santa Lucia di Guardia Sanframondi in Benevento, the co-operative is one of the region’s most enduring success stories.
The winery’s shared vineyards now span over 2,000 hectares and are mostly located on Campania’s gently undulating hills, with its own microclimate protecting vines from heat and cold, at an approximate altitude of 350m above sea level.
Production: Harvested late September. Grapes are soft-pressed following cold-maceration. Fermented for 15 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel containers. Aged in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature of 14°C.
Tasting note: Strong and expressive notes of white fruits and stone fruits with mineral hints. A lovely vibrant acidity runs through the backbone of the wine.
