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.
Greco stands alongside Fiano as one of Southern Italy’s most noble white grapes. An extremely difficult variety to work with as it ripens late, characterized by low productivity and tends to be very sensitive to grey rot and other diseases as well as oxidizing easily, yet it’s one of Italy’s most famous whitewine grape variety and very recognizable with its bright yellow berries lightly specked with brown dots. Greco wines are extremely enjoyable when young but are able to also age very well.
