About Fattoria La Rivolta

Located in Torrecuso, in the province of Beneveno, Fattoria La Rivolta consists of hilly lands that range in altitude from 300 to 600 meters. With unique soils of limestone and clay, the vineyards are located in one of the smallest DOCs in the region, Campania’s Taburno, home to some of the most picturesque and mountainous vineyards in all of Europe.

Here, the Cotroneo family has been living in the region for several generations. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the grandparents Giovanni and Teresa maintained and cultivated one of the largest agricultural farms in Benevento, which was later divided amongst their eight grandchildren.

After joining lands with his brother Mario, Paolo Cotroneo launched Fattoria La Rivolta in 1997. A third-generation farmer, Paolo immediately began to organically cultivate his vines, earning certification from ICEA, the Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale, in 2001. A family affair that includes two sisters and a cousin, these 29 hectares of cultivated vineyards are hand harvested to produce low yields and farmed without the use of chemical treatments.

About Aglianico

Aglianico is a red wine grape now thought to be native to southern Italy. It produces full-bodied red wines that show musky berry flavors with firm tannins and good aging potential. Campania’s Taurasi and Basilicata’s Aglianico del Vulture are two of the best known appellations to use the variety.

Even when grown in hot climates, Aglianico is capable of retaining high levels of acidity. This makes it a particularly useful vine in the Mediterranean. Despite its comparatively high acidity, the variety is late-ripening and vigorous, with a tendancy to produce high volumes of fruit if not checked by viticultural practices.

In their youth, Aglianico wines tend to be very tannic and concentrated, especially if adverse weather conditions force producers to harvest their crop before it has achieved complete ripeness. A few years of aging has a favorable impact on the wine and helps the tannins to soften and the fruit profile to emerge.

The structure and richness of Aglianico make it a popular grape for blending in southern Italy. In Campania, it is frequently blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the production of some IGT wines. Aglianico wines are typically garnet-red, fading to terracotta tones after sufficient time in bottle.
