The wine "Terra di Lavoro" takes its name from the province of the ancient Kingdom of the Two Sicilies which included the present territory of Caserta.
The vineyards of Aglianico and PIedirosso grapes, located at 400 m. a.s.l. between chestnut and olive groves sloping down to the Gulf of Gaeta, on the slopes of an ancient extinct volcano, have been recovered by the owners with the same with which they were grown since Roman times.
It is a uniquw blend of Aglianico – Piedirosso, a Italian blend of the two key red wine grapes of Campania in southern Italy. They are used to great effect individually here, in wines such as Aglianico del Vulture and Capri Rosso.
