Tenute di Rocca dei Leoni
The Rocca dei Leoni tenutas lie in the heart of Benevento’s Sannio area, between the Valle Caudina, the Valle Telesina, and the valley of the Tammaro river. They comprise some 30 hectares of volcanic soils rich in phosphorus and potassium, a truly unique terroir that is gentle and harsh at the same time, and which imparts a marked personality and intense aromas to the wine.
The ancient vines and the luxurious vegetation of cherry trees, fir, chestnut, walnut, and broom all make their contribution to the aromatic qualities of the wines, which are made from clones of aglianico and falanghina. All of the Rocca dei Leoni vineyards are registered as Taburno and Sannio DOC.
