Winemaker Notes

Ungrafted vines, trained in aversana trees style on sandy soil.

The harvest of the grapes is carried out in advance of the complete maturation to preserve the must acidity and the vinification is carried out in white with soft pressing through vacuum press. The must ferments at about 14 ° C with cold stabilization. Filtration is followed by the addition of selected sugars and yeasts to activate a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 5 bar pressure for about three months. Then bottling is carried out and the refinement continues in bottles for another three months.


The Story

The foundation of "I Borboni" winery originated from the roots of the Numeroso family, owner of the estate since the second half of the 1700s. The winery counts twenty hectares of land planted with vines with the legendary form of farming known as "vine married to poplar": vines are grown as climbing plants on poplar poles with an average height of 6 to 10 meters ( 20 to 30 feet ).

In 1996, the renovation of the cellar began on the old family home dating back to the second half of the 1500s, built on a tuff cave in the historic center of Lusciano.

The traditional vinification of Asprinio is thus recovered in the caves, dug at a depth of 15 meters under the manor houses, unique for their environments particularly suitable for conservation, able to ensure the right humidity, absence of light and constant temperature throughout the year.
