This estate has been created by Antonio Buono in 1995. It is located on the top of Selvanova hill – a former haunting reserve of the Borbone royal family - about 250 meters above sea level surrounded by a big bend of the river Volturno, between Matese massif (2000 m) and Mount Taburno (1400 m.), about 50 km's north of Napoli. The vineyards, planted at 6500 vines/ha with guyot and capovolto systems and are 70% Aglianico, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Pallagrello Nero, 4% Pallagrello Bianco and 5% Fiano. The climate is continental, with hot summer and rigid winters. During the ripening period of Aglianico (september-october) the temperature variations between night and day can be as high as 22-24 °C. Soil consists of deep clay layers very rich in limestones which contributes to freshness and aromatics. Wines are extremely rich and refined. The whites are medium to full bodied, very salty and mineral, almost briny, while the Aglianico based reds show luscious fruit, firm tannins, wonderful velvety texture and remarkable depth.
