Vigna Maurisi: Keeping the Ancient Methods in Winemaking
Vigna Maurisi produces fine wines, each unique expression of the territory of Irpinia.
The Vigna Maurisi farm was founded in 2007 by Felice E. Corcione, well-known Director of the National Research Council (CNR) and “Invited Professor” at numerous Universities in the world. Retired from the CNR, he founded the company together with his wife. After extensive studies of pruning, fertilizing and phytosanitary treatments aimed at safeguarding the environment and quality winemaking, he began the production and marketing of DOCG wines such as Greco di Tufo, Aglianico and Aglianico-Taurasi. The vineyards are located in the volcanic areas of Irpinia. They are conducted in a biodynamic way to respect the symbiosis of Nature-Plants-Animals. The estate consists of three hectares: one for each type of grapes. The annual production is 30,000 bottles: 10,000 bottles for each type of wine.
Felice Corcione applies the biodynamic method in the cultivation of its own vineyard. In particular, it takes care with a determination of the processes that feed the forces connected to the ground on the one hand and those related to the light of the sun on the other, keeping them in harmony. Therefore, the vineyard “lives” in the balance between these two forces.
Vigna Maurisi has joined a Asia Import Challenge 2019 and won a Silver Medal for their wine, Greco di Tufo 2018.
