Tasting Notes

Light straw color. Aromas are more savory than floral, but the bouquet also contains fruit and mineral notes. In the mouth, moderate but thorough-going acidity supports lemon, pear, and nectarine fruit. Dry, nicely rounded, medium bodied with a longer finish.

 

The Mastroberardino family has grown grapes in Campania for 11 generations. The present winery was built in 1878 in Avellino by an earlier Angelo, inherited by his son Michele, followed by his grandson Angelo. His sons Antonio and Walter took over upon his death, and Walter started his own project in 1978, named after his wife Dora. In 1994, the brothers severed their relationship, with Walter’s family focusing on Terredora. Antonio kept the family name and winery; Walter kept most of the best vineyards. He is now the biggest landowner in Campania, with almost 500 acres of vines, and produces more wine than anyone else. The climate here is Mediterranean with significant diurnal temperature swings. Soils are calcareous clay.

 

The wine’s name means, “I rise from the ashes,” a nod to Walter’s second career. Grapes for this wine are estate grown and harvested in late October. Grapes macerate on the skins for several hours before a gentle pressing and fermentation with selected yeasts at cool temperatures in stainless steel. The wine ages several weeks on the lees.
