The harvest of the Asprinio grapes takes place slightly earlier than full maturation and the vinification is carried out in white with soft pressing using a vacuum press. The must ferments at a controlled temperature of around 15°C for 15-20 days. After 4/5 months of refinement and stabilization in steel, a second fermentation follows by adding harvest must and yeasts and immediately bottled. A slow fermentation begins for approximately three months which will bring the internal pressure to approximately 2 Bar. The yeasts will remain in contact with the wine with the aim of refining the product over time and will be present with the characteristic "fondo" visible in the bottle.
“Rivolta” is a sparkling wine refermented in the bottle according to the ancestral method obtained from Asprinio grapes. The winemaking phase was thought to return to the historical tradition of peasant sparkling wines, but carefully reinterpreted to obtain an authentic wine in a modern key.
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.
