Winery Located in One of the Best Winegrowing Region in the World
The winery Corte Normanna is in the heart of Sannio, one of the world’s best winegrowing regions. Alfredo and Gaitano started the tradition in 1927, but it was in 1984 that the wine cellar came into existence, and the first wine bottles were sold in 1997. The quality winemaking is owed to the combination of ancient traditional methods with modern innovative techniques and high-quality fruity grapes. Roberto Mazzer is the winemaker here who has lots of experience, and many small wineries of the region consult him.
Perfect Tannin Balance in Wines
The winery owns 20 hectares of vineyards in the fresh and sunny hills between the Matese and Taburno mountains. The ideal natural conditions allow the growth of quality grapes used to make full-volume wines that have a perfect tannin balance. They make around 100,000 bottles of wine every year that reflect the unique terroir of the Sannio region. Local grape varietals Falanghina, Fiano, Greco, Montepulciano, Sangiovese, and Aglianico, grow here and are used to make their award-winning wines.
Efforts to Conserve the Soil
Integrated viticulture techniques are used to manage the vineyards and ensure high quality properly. There is no use of chemical fertilizers and herbicides. Efforts are made to conserve the soil, and each cluster of vine is handled separately. Wines are identified according to the vineyards they originated from. The cellar houses stainless steel tanks along with French and Slavonian oak barrels for the ageing of wines. The ageing of wines helps to attain the desired taste and strong fragrance expected from their wines.
