Lunarossavini

Lunarossavini is the small Campanian winery that, combining fidelity to tradition with an inexhaustible and innovative desire to experiment, is making known to the world the great terroir of the Monti Picentini, in the province of Salerno: a vast regional park in the Campanian Apennines, with two WWF-protected oases.

The vineyards and the winery are located in this splendid territory, situated inland but influenced by the sea breezes of the nearby Gulf of Salerno and safeguarded with great love and attention according to the principles of very low environmental impact wine production.

Lunarossavini

Mario Mazzitelli is the owner and winemaker of Lunarossavini, aided by winemaker Fortunato Sebastiano: both are crucial in achieving the high quality standards of the winery. The mission is to enhance native grape varieties, especially fiano and aglianico, not sparing experiments with international grape varieties and also seeking new winemaking methods (such as skin maceration and aging in amphorae). The wines of Lunarossavini express passion, enthusiasm, and creativity.

Campania

Viticulture in Campania has its roots in ancient Greek tradition, when numerous grape varieties now considered native were introduced by the Hellenics. Powdery mildew and phylloxera arrived later than elsewhere, but the damage was enormous, and the path to quality was only taken from the 1980s onwards.
Recently, Campanian wines have seen incredible success thanks to a production characterized by traditional agriculture, with a strong focus on environmental preservation and sustainability. Many of Campania's wineries are family-owned and produce high-quality wines in small quantities.

In general, Campanian viticulture is characterized by a great variety of terroirs and native varieties, which give rise to wines of great quality and personality, each with its own unique characteristics. For many years, the imposing Taurasi DOCG was the only wine to be awarded the DOCG status, but since 2003, Greco di Tufo DOCG and Fiano di Avellino DOC have also been recognized, and since 2011, Aglianico del Taburno has also been honored with this designation. In the rest of the region, there are also 15 DOC and 10 IGT wines.

Salerno

The province of Salerno is extremely interesting from a viticultural point of view: within the protected area are some of the most important wineries in Campania. Wineries that, within a few years, have gained international renown and achieved significant quality levels.

Vegetation plays a crucial role in the ecosystem. In fact, Monte Tuoro, in the highest part, is characterized by the dominant presence of beech trees, while as you descend, chestnut, oak, and mountain maple trees make their way. Another significant aspect is the presence of numerous springs that give rise to streams that mostly flow downstream. The vineyards, therefore, integrate into this environment and benefit from it.

In the province of Salerno, there are these denominations: Paestum IGT and Campania IGT.

The province of Salerno is a viticultural jewel, with some of the most important wineries in Campania.
