Camerlengo

(Rapolla, Italy)

Is the title of the Cardinal Camerlengo, who administers the Apostolic Chamber. They have called their wine Camerlengo to summon these noble origins and to introduce their guests to the history and traditions of Rapolla, which is rooted in the past of ancient peasant wisdom. Located on the slopes of Mount Vulture, this land is rich in vineyards, chestnuts and olive trees supplying a fertile soil that is abundant in silicon and potassium. In Rapolla, the climate is temperate with extreme temperature changes from day to night. It is this wonderful landscape where Camerlengo is located giving us a divine splendor of his vines.

These are 10-12 year old vines planted in a site called 'Toppo d'Avuzzo' composed of volcanic-tufaceous and calcareous soils. These grapes are hand harvested between September 20 and October 10. The grapes are pressed and left to ferment with natural yeasts in chestnut vats with continuous punching for 15-20 days. The wine is then racked and allowed to settle for 48 hours before being transferred to tonneaux (800L) for two months. Unfiltered.
