The flavours obtained in the vineyard are then preserved in the winery. The must is chilled immediately and fermented at 13°-14°C rather than the higher fermentation temperatures (18-20°C) prevalent in Italy. The wine remains in stainless steel tank until bottling, sees no oak and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. This results in much purer flavours being captured in the wine.
The Lava vineyards are situated at 450-700m above sea level in the Irpinian hills of Campania, potentially one of Italy's most exciting wine producing areas. The soils have a poor, volcanic character (as a result of volcanic ash being blown inland from Vesuvius over the centuries), which gives a real depth of flavour to the white varieties that is preserved in the winery by Marco Flacco.
The vineyards are situated 450-550 metres above sea level, and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character. Despite being so far south, this is one of the latest regions in Italy to harvest.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years
