Monte di Grazia

MONTE DI GRAZIA, ALFONSO ALPINA, Campania – Organic

Alfonso Arpina’s vineyard holding is very small at just 2.7 ha. It is located in the commune of Tramonti, in the heart of the Monte Lattari and a stone’s throw away from the Amalfi Coast. The terraces on which the vineyards have been planted consist of volcanic ashes, originating from former eruptions of the nearby Vesuvius as well as red clay soils. Although a secluded spot, well hidden from Naples, there is continuous ventilation coming from the nearby coast as well as inland winds blowing from the north, which not only have a mitigating effect in summer as well as winter, but the constant thermal movements provide to the special micro climate in this part of the hills.
