"Fuocoallegro" Vesuvio Piedirosso DOC 2020 - Casa Setaro

100% Piedirosso grapes, grown on free-range vines. But that's not all. In this Fuocoallegro, Vesuvio DOC, there is much more. There is a very special process that involves the use of terracotta amphorae and French barriques. Containers useful to create an important wine but deeply linked to its territory of origin. The grapes used for its production come from the Tirone della Guardia vineyards, located at about 300 metres above sea level, inside the Vesuvius National Park. In the glass it has a beautiful intense ruby red colour, with nuances turning to purple. The nose reveals a floral and fruity soul, with hints of geraniums, undergrowth and ripe red berries that chase each other relentlessly. In addition, notes of slight evolution, such as tobacco, spices and those unmistakable mineral hints reminiscent of the volcano and its dark lands. In the mouth it is round and balanced. Pleasantly tannic, with a long, harmonious finish.

We are in Campania, on the slopes of Vesuvius. This is where Casa Setaro is located, the brainchild of a family which, with great dedication, has dedicated itself in recent years to the promotion and rediscovery of the region's ancient native grape varieties, some of which are at risk of extinction, such as Caprettone. Production is carried out with full respect for the environment, to create a range of wines that are representative of their territory. But always with an eye on innovation and the future. Massimo Setaro runs the company, assisted by his wife Maria Rosaria. Together they safeguard the history of Vesuvian viticulture with loving tailoring. The vineyard, planted with free-range vines, is the heart of Casa Setaro. Twelve hectares, situated at an altitude between 200 and 350 metres above sea level, with volcanic soils that give the wines a very special character.
