Pietracupa

Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino, Campania, Italy

Montefredane, Avellino Campania, Italy Sabino Loffredo is a young vigneron from the rustic region of Campania in southern Italy. In 1993, he took over his family’s winery, modestly reinventing the estate as Pietracupa. The combination of his talents as a gifted wine taster and technical skills has placed his estate and the region of Montefredane on the world stage. Sabino always knew that the terroir of his modest region was capable of challenging other established areas of Campania. Pietracupa wines represent his style and his idea of the wine world. He is one of the most successful examples of how a small producer can produce great wines. Pietracupa is situated near Avellino, in the hinterland of the Campania region. It is a mountainous terrain that has little to do with the usual idea of southern Italy, but at the same time it reflects its sunny, open nature. The limited production focuses on the grape varieties typical of the area: Fiano and Greco for the whites, and Aglianico for the red wines. The soils of the estate’s 3 hectares are composed of a thin layer of clay and sand over a compact core of tufaceous rock, the legacy of the ancient volcanoes that made up the majority of inland Campania. The volcanic rock is responsible for the mineral and chalk elements that make up these incredibly pure, crystal clear wines. The company’s wines are like its owner: they tend towards the original but are able to speak faithfully of their land. Elegant, deep, and highly mineral, they make a fine first impression ands express the purity and potential of the rugged Campania terroir
