"Lovely berry, raspberry and sage aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. Delicious. Volcanic freshness. Drink now."

The grapes are harvested from vineyards located in the Capaccio-Paestum area of Campania in the province of Salerno , in the middle of the Cilento National Park. The grapes are softly crushed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for eight months in tank before bottling.

"Lovely berry, raspberry and sage aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. Delicious. Volcanic freshness. Drink now."

The grapes are harvested from vineyards located in the Capaccio-Paestum area of Campania in the province of Salerno , in the middle of the Cilento National Park. The grapes are softly crushed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for eight months in tank before bottling.

La Capranera, located in Campania, focuses on producing organic wine from indigenous grape varieties at an accessible price point. La Capranera, translates to "black goat" in Italian, is named for the breed of goats - cilentana nera - that graze in the national park near where the grapes for these wines are grown. Once on the verge of becoming extinct, the goats have had a resurgence in population, just as wines from Campania have recently enjoyed increased visibility internationally. The wines are made from three ancient, local grape varieties: Fiano, Falanghina, and Aglianico and are harvested from vineyards located in the Capaccio-Paestum area of Campania in the middle of the Cilento National Park. The Tyrrhenian Sea is located just a few miles away and has a moderating effect on the climate of this region, producing excellent wines of exceptional ripeness and balance.

Winemaker's Tasting Note:

"A full-bodied wine accented by notes of fresh red berry, with a nuance of curry and chocolate. A perfect accompaniment to strongly-flavored foods, especially medium-aged cheeses and roasted or grilled meat."
