YOU'LL LOVE IT FOR...
its iodized sapidity.
We are on the island of Capri, in the Gulf of Naples, one of the most suitable areas for viticulture in Campania.
Viticulture on the island enjoys a dry, mild and windy climate, with very little rain: this makes the cultivation destined for the production of fresh, savory and drinkable wines. Viticulture, on the island, is practiced today in a few precious plots.
The Capri DOC (which dates back to 1977) coincides with the entire territory of the island. The island has a long history of wine production and covers one red and one white wine, made from traditional grape varieties of the area. Capri Rosso is mainly produced with Piedirosso (at least 80%), a native Campania vine that is widespread on the island. Capri Bianco is instead obtained from Falanghina and Greco Bianco. Falanghina was the basic grape variety for the ancient Faleni wines, while Greco Bianco is a grape variety genetically identical to the Asprinio used in the sparkling wines of Aversa.
The Scala Fenicia winery was born from the renewal of the winemaking tradition of the island of Capri, as a challenge for the future of this splendid island. A suggestive cellar, built inside an ancient Roman cistern. The thick stone walls guarantee the best climatic conditions throughout the year, ideal for refining the wine. The productive part of the winery has been active since the early nineteenth century, so much so that there is still an ancient press for pressing the grapes.
The vineyards are grown on the north side of the island and occupy 4000 square meters divided into 4 small terraced parcels on the north east side of Mount Solaro. Viticulture is tiring and heroic.
In half a hectare, the winery produces this only wine, the Capri Bianco DOC, produced by Greco (50%), Biancolella (30%) and Falanghina (20%). A very pleasant and territorial wine, in which all the magic of the island enters.
Luigi Esposito, the legendary owner, took care of the land and those plants all his life from which Capri Bianco Doc is born. From him come advice and stories that are constant nourishment for Andrea Koch, who today collects the legacy. Care, passion and transparency are at home here, every moment of production is accompanied by respect for this tradition, for this land and its centuries-old vines, climbing on the terraces built with dry stone walls. All to give a wine that is a crystalline mirror of history and territory.
