List of products by brand Luigi Tecce

Luigi Tecce winery is located in the district of Trinità, in Pontremoli, Taurasi DOCG area. Luigi represents the fourth generation of a family of winemakers, but not immediately follows the family tradition. He began his career as a jockey; not for nothing is dedicating his firts Aglianico bottled in 2001 to Varenne, the great trotter. His father's death in 1997 forces Luigi to leave the horses and return to his own land, to grow a little more than a hectare of vineyard planted with very old vines, dating back to 1930.

Today, the old family vineyards are divided into small plots in Paternopoli, one of the most expressive areas of Taurasi, not only due to the altitude ranges between 500 and 600 meters, but also because of exposure to the south, which provides excellent ripening of the grapes. Luigi is a remarkable character, he only accept the advice of his friend Vincenzo Mercurio. His harvest always during much more than that of other growers in the area, since it collects clusters one by one, as they arrive at a perfect ripeness. His two wines, Aglianico "Satyricon" and Taurasi "Poliphemo", produced in less than 500 packs, are two gems that shine in the panorama of the wines of Irpinia, and in their names contain the poetic and literary soul of Luigi.
