Nestled in the fertile Irpina region of Campania, Villa Raiano is proud to be a part of a rich, ancient viticultural tradition. On the banks of the eastward-flowing river Sabato, grapes are grown for Avellino’s smoky, mineral-driven white wines: Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo. Flowing to the west is the river Calore, whose banks are host to the Aglianico grapes that make up the region’s bold, earthy red wines. Villa Raiano has vineyards on each side, resulting in a range of wines that are rather different from one another. What they have in common is their remarkable quality.
Red wine produced only with Aglianico grapes coming from the lower part of our 9 hectares located in Castelfranci, province of Avellino at 500 meters a.s.l. The grapes are picked by hand and carried to the cellar in small boxes to avoid crushing them. The wine, after the fementation, matures in oak barrels of different size for about 12 months, in stainless steel tanks for 12 months and in bottle for 12 months.
