taurasi d.o.c.g.

fatica contadina


Cuvèe of selected grapes from our Aglianico vineyards, which give life to Taurasi Fatica Contadina, an expression of strong varietal identity and longevity and a perfect credit to the tradition of this great Italian red. Despite important aging in wood, Fatica Contadina, a name that recalls the hard work in the fields, fully interprets the grape variety and the most vocational territory for Taurasi D.O.C.G. wine and especially some of the most renowned areas of this denomination.
