A family history made of people, ideas, and a lot of passion. Rossovermiglio originates from a centuries-old family tradition of winemakers in Paduli, in Samnite territory, in the heart of Campania. Already in 1800, the Verlingieri family produced quality red grapes and wines, which were successfully sold in the cellar located in the heart of the old Paduli. The company, passed on from father to son for generations, has been led by Piero Verlingieri since 1988. After a few years, in 1992 he began to re-plant vineyards, preferring white wines to red ones of the family tradition, leaving in the Rossovermiglio brand the emblematic synthesis of a family history. Piero and Maria Teresa Verlingieri, husband and wife, are the true guardians of the long family winery tradition. For them, producing quality wine still means to follow a strict discipline in the vineyard as in the cellar, in full respect of local tradition and the territory. Rossovermiglio produces only wines from native vines of Campania. An intentional choice to enhance the character and the typicality of some of the best Italian vines.
Aglianico del Sannio
Known as the “Nebbiolo of the south” and believed to be one of Italy’s oldest grape varieties alongside Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, Aglianico is one of the world’s great red grapes. This moniker only scratches the surface yet speaks to the variety’s ability to express finesse and pedigree from a multitude of unique vineyard sites. Some of the most exciting bottlings come from the Puglia, Campania and Basilicata. Aglianico del Sannio often shows best with a bit of age, yet many examples on the market today show immediate accessibility, with potential to hold well in the cellar.
