“Morgia Lafesta” vineyards are located at 550 meters above the see level. Perfect sun exposure allows Aglianico and Tintilia grapes to mature ad they bath in constant sunshine. After being hand harvestd both grape varieties are vinified together inside stainless steel tanks. During maceration there is constant care to ensure that Aglianico tannins do not overpower the delicate Tintilia notes. The soil that nurtures the grapes has an intense red color and is rich in iron, clay and minerals. This tenacious red wine has a great structure graciously softened and balanced by the elegance of Tintilia.
