Elegance and sincerity – bottled.

The “Sphaeranera” Rosso is composed of 100% Pallagrello Nero from Cacciagalli in the Italian region of Campania. The wine was macerated for a long period on its skins and fermented with wild yeasts in amphorae. The amphorae slightly oxidizes the wine, giving it just a bit of texture, while keeping the wine’s blackberry, brambly characteristics.
  • Diana Iannancone’s family have tended this 35-hectare property since the 17th Century, in addition to growing hazelnut trees and other crops on site.
  • The property is a family operation, but Diana takes the lead in running the winery.
  • Pallagrello Nero is an ancient variety from Campania that neared extinction in the 20th Century, and wines made from this grape are full bodied and tannic.
  • The vines are biodynamically farmed and thrive in volcanic soils.
