Walking through Lettere, while amazed by the stunning view, you will feel the still very strong family bonds and come to believe you have been thrown back in time to an Italy of older times, no tourist masses, no chain restaurants or coffee houses, only family businesses.
And it is exactly those families that in century-old traditional way produce Lettere Wine.
Drizzling, sparkling, a red treasure, unique in its own way, similar to Lambrusco but fruitier.
Imagine a wood-oven baked Margherita Pizza, topped with gooey mozzarella and fresh basil. You need a fitting wine for that, red to suit the sauce, but not too heavy and with some kick to it. You’re having pizza, so you want some spark to your drink as well. Wine Spector Magazine call Lettere Wine the perfect pizza wine.
This wine has been produced for family use only according to antique ways since centuries, but only recently these families are opening their production to the public. The uniqueness of this wine is due to the suitable climate and nutrient rich soil the grapes are cultivated on. When Mount Vesuvius erupted, the ash arrived so far to cover the hills of the Monte Lattari where the grape cultivation takes place. Grapes such as Piedirosso, Aglianico and Olivella, are all used to produce Lettere Wine – they are an ancient mix for modern times.
