CANTINA SANPAOLO rises in a hilly area, straddling the provinces of Avellino and Benevento, perfectly integrating with the landscape. Here the white berried grapes are grown which give rise to Greco di Tufo Docg, Fiano di Avellino Docg and Beneventano Falanghina Igp, together with the fine Irpinia Aglianico Dop from which the homonymous wine and the most prestigious Taurasi Docg are born. The cellar develops on three levels dug on the slope of a hill: the terracing nearing completion, with planting of vineyards, will allow it to be completely integrated with the surrounding environment, respecting the harmony of the landscape that inspired its restructuring. It is technically equipped for the production of whites and reds and for their refinement in the barrel room, made up of barrels of different carats: barrique, tonneau and oak barrels. The labels currently produced are eight.
The vineyards, cultivated up to 700 meters of sunny height, enjoy a strong temperature range that enhances the aromaticity of the grapes. Most of the vineyards are rented or jointly managed: the conformation of the properties, fragmented and located throughout the territory, allows procurement from different suppliers, guaranteeing the selection of the best grapes and the constant balancing of the product over the years. In this way, the quality and characteristics of the wines remain unchanged from year to year.
The Claudio Quarta vineyard is composed of small plots for a total of about 22 hectares: 10 extend around the cellar, divided between the areas of Tufo - where the precious Greco - of Lapio is grown - in the heart of the Docg Fiano d'Avellino for the breeding of Fiano - and Paternopoli, for the cultivation of Aglianico, in the Dop Irpinia Aglianico and Docg Taurasi. The other 12 hectares, cultivated in Falanghina and Aglianico, constitute a single estate located in Pietrelcina, in the Benevento area.
