Massimo Di Renzo
The Mastroberardino family, leaders in Italian viticulture, are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII. Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of Southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania’s ancient, native varietals, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct grapes into world class varieties.
The terroir of Irpinia is well suited for viticulture, for its unique volcanic microclimate, due to Mt. Vesuvius. The neighboring Partenio and Terminio mountain ranges contribute to the suitable growing climate of the region.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
