ALOIS 'TREBULANUM' CASAVECCHIA
ALOIS

Trebulanum is made from 100% Casavecchia from Terre del Volturno IGT, one of Campania's rediscovered ancient grapes. Although very little is known about Casavecchia, the local legend claims that it comes from a single, forgotten vine that was discovered among the ruins of Pontelatone. A government project was eventually launched and devoted to finding these ancient varieties that survived phylloxera but were no longer being cultivated. Today, Fattoria Alois is one of the leading estates in Campania producing this wine. The grapes grow ranging between 400-500 feet above sea level upon beds of clay and volcanic soils. Once harvested the fermentation takes place in stainless steel with maceration on the skins for 20 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in large Italian botti for and the wines age for 24 months.
