Combination of tradition and modern technology at Castelfranci
The Colli di Castelfranci is a story of young people who believed in the potential of the famous Irpinia wine region and continued making wines like their ancestors. The tradition goes down from one generation to the next and is a culture of the place. The ancient tools used by their ancestors are still present here, and wines are still matured in wooden barrels just like past times. Their father’s teachings allow the owners to make refined wines with a combination of ancient traditions and contemporary methods and technologies.
Ideal conditions at the winery
The winery is at a great geographical position, which is rich in vineyards required for making the best wines. The optimum humidity works nicely with the Mediterranean climate and soil to give ideal conditions for growing fruity grapes. The average yield per vine is low but of high quality, and the entire harvest is done manually and brought to the cellar for vinification. Fiano, Aglianico, and Greco grapes are used to make their red, white, and rose wines.
Proper vinification and maturation of wines
Careful steps are taken while winemaking to enhance the primary qualities of the wine, including its taste, aroma, and authenticity. Between fermentation and bottling, maturation of wines in wooden barrels is necessary to attain the desired features of the wines. After bottling, wines take a complete cycle, turning from youth to maturity, after spending time at the winery. Castelfranci offers great hospitality to people wanting to explore the gifted region and sip on their unmatched wines.
