Tenuta del Meriggio

The company is located in Montemiletto, in the province of Avellino. The philosophy of the estate is based on the productive choice of maximizing the potential of the grapes from its vineyards, planted on exceptionally suited land, with the belief that quality primarily originates in the vineyard. They work in respect of the "terroir" (understood as the indissoluble interaction between soil and climate factors, grape variety, and human intervention) through updated farming systems, modern winemaking techniques, and traditional aging methods in the cellar - the only way to achieve the highest quality.

Tenuta del Meriggio

The wine line of Tenuta del Meriggio is entirely built around Irpinian and regional grape varieties, characterized by freshness, body, and aromas.

The careful selection of suitable land for position, exposure, altitude, soil composition, and slope allows the winery to obtain excellent quality grapes, vinified in purity to express their unique characteristics and produce wines animated by the desire to excite.

Piedmont

In Piedmont, the first traces of viticulture date back to pre-Roman times (precisely to the Bronze Age, around 1500 B.C.), and although today the peak of quality is found in the region's great red wines, Piedmont also produces excellent white wines and sparkling wines.

The role of Piedmont has been fundamental for the development of modern Italian winemaking. It is here that the first examples of zoning of wine-growing areas were recorded, introducing concepts such as terroir and cru to Italian wines. Thanks to zoning, if a wine is produced exclusively from grapes coming from a single vineyard or parcel, the geographical indication appears on the label, increasing its prestige.

In addition to the geographical delineations indicated on the map, Piedmont is divided into 8 zones that group the 16 DOCG and 42 regional DOCs. Among these, we remember in the north the famous Gattinara DOCG and Ghemme DOCG, near Turin the Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG, in Monferrato the Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG, Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG, Dogliani DOCG, Ovada DOCG, Gavi DOCG, and Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG, ending with Roero DOCG to the left of the Tanaro river and, in the Langhe region, with the famous Barolo DOCG, Barbaresco DOCG, and Dogliani DOCG.

In Piedmont, the revolution in the world of wine began, bringing Italy back to the forefront of high-quality production. Here, with few exceptions, single-varietal wines are produced, which best express the characteristics of the terroir and magnificently exalt the Piedmontese territory.

Irpinia

Irpinia is the homeland of Aglianico, Greco, and Fiano. Less than 50 km from Naples, thanks to the conformation of its territory, Irpinia is a land suited for the production of high-quality wines. Cut in two by the Apennine Mountains, it has altitudes ranging from 300 to 1800 meters above sea level. This allows for well-drained soils with good water reserves and significant temperature variations between the daytime heat and the cool nights. In particular, the Tyrrhenian side (the most suitable for viticulture) is mountainous and discontinuous, rich in vegetation and water, with abundant rainfall.

The orography of the territory determines the formation of various microclimates that allow for the production of different types of wines. The clay-limestone soils benefit from the effusive activity of the three surrounding volcanic areas: Vulture, Vesuvius, and the mountains of Caserta. Over the centuries, the accumulation of layers of ash and lapilli has given rise to tuff deposits, with minerals and looser layers, another unique feature for quality viticulture. Irpinia is the Campania province with the highest concentration of vineyards and boasts the presence of three DOCG wines: Taurasi, Greco di Tufo, and Fiano di Avellino. It produces high-quality wines, vinified according to modern techniques but rooted in local tradition.

The orography creates diversified microclimates, while the clay-limestone soils provide unique minerality.
