Story

600 meters up on the steep slopes of the volcanic cliffs, Elena Fucci’s vines benefit from the intense sunlight of the south, as well as from dramatic day and night temperature differences that promote freshness and acidity. But overall, the Monte Vulture climate is relatively cool and the harvest is one of the latest, beginning in the last week of October. The majority of the vines were planted in the 1950’s in the dark, mineral-rich pozzolanic soils that composed of layers of clay interspersed with lapilli and ash from the eruptive phases of the now dormant volcano a few hundred meters away.
