Asterìas means starfish in Greek. It is the company’s first white wine, and is made from Fiano grapes. The star symbolizes guiding light, but it also speaks of the inspiration that comes from Monte Stella, a massif in Cilento National Park that towers 1131 metres above sea level. Its peak looks down on our vineyard, nestled between the mountain and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Diciotto is a Cilentan Aglianico from vines planted in 2003. Its name, which means “eighteen”, celebrates the eighteen years since the first harvest of Zero, the company’s first wine.
The 1.4-hectare vineyard is at 150m above sea level, on the flysch typical of Cilento, rich in clay and limestone, which brings to life the unique and refined expression of this grape.
Zero was created in 1997, the product of a two-hectare Aglianico vineyard in Acqua di Costanza, in the municipality of Torchiara. This part of the Alto Cilento shows the influence of the Tyrrhenian and the very sunny climate.
The wine is made beginning with partially dried grapes, with spontaneous fermentation, and is aged in wood.
The name Tempa di Zoè refers not only to a physical place; it is, above all, a declaration of intent. “Tempa” is the word for the rolling hills of Cilento that stretch down to the sea from north to south.
Zoè is the Greek word for the essence of life, the universal principle common to the animal, vegetable and mineral worlds.
