Since Sabino took over the reins of his father's small business in 1999, the Pietracupa winery has been a constant, continuous and unstoppable growth that, season after season, year after year, has given us Fiano di Avelino and Greco di Tufo of absolute depth. Deep and mineral wines, as elegant as few others meet, bright and multi-faceted. Bottles of great longevity, as well as unique and inimitable interpretations of what is the extraordinary Irpinian territory. Not only that, for some years now - starting in 2008 to be exact - Sabino Loffredo himself has decided to confront the greatest of the red wines of the South: Taurasi.
This is how a small plot purchased in Torre Le Nocelle, an ideal area for the production of a great Aglianico, is giving great satisfaction even in red. At the moment there are just over seven hectares planted with vineyards: we are in the territory of the municipality of Montefredane, and on volcanic soils, characterized by excellent exposure and excellent temperature ranges between day and night, are grown vines in full respect of the environment and ecosystem, following the rules of conventional agriculture but never invasive.
Among the rows, the practice of green manure is used, and copper and sulphur are the solutions adopted to combat fungi, parasites and plant diseases. In the cellar, thanks also to the precious collaboration of the oenologist Carmine Valentino, every production step is scrupulously monitored. With about 40 thousand bottles per year, Pietracupa has long been a reality that, harvest after harvest, continues to give emotions among those that no enthusiast should miss.
