Giuseppe Fortunato, an engineer turned farmer, and his wife, Sandra, live in Pozzuoli, Campi Flegrei, in Naples, Campania. This tiny sanctuary is an agricultural peace amidst the urban sprawl of Naples, where practicing viticulture is a constant act of resistance, competing with real estate developers. Giuseppe does his best to maintain biological diversity in these beautiful organic vineyards that overlook the sea, which is a mere 2km away. Medium-bodied with a great array of red fruits and floral aromas.  

Pairing: Grilled stuffed portobello mushrooms, pizza, bolognese 

Grapes: 95% Piedirosso and 5% co-planted ancient varietals (Ricciulella, Marsigliese, Colagiovanna)

Soil: sand, clay, and silt (quartz & feldspar) above a base of igneous rock. The Campi Flegrei (Phlegraean Fields) DOC is a large volcanic area of craters and thermal springs, all of which are the remains of an immense underwater volcano that had Pozzuoli at its center.

Viticulture: Organic
