The project Cantine Russo Taurasi starts in 1999 from the idea of continuing the millennial wine-making tradition of Irpinia. We have a clear mission, that is a risk and a challenge at the same time: to use only autochthonous grape in purity to obtain typical and unique wines with a strong personality that represent the identity of Irpinia.
Our vinery of " La Carazita" is about 7 hectares and is entirely cultivated with Aglianico red grape with a yield of 60q per hectare. We use this grapes for Aglianico and Taurasi. White grapes used for Greco, Fiano e Falanghina come from sites with high vocation to the production of each variety to have high quality grapes all the time.
Our philosophy is to apply a minimal treatment of grapes and wine and a not invasive use of woods to get a a wine that is what the vineyard has produced.
We are on the market since 2004 and today we produce six wines all produced with autochthonous grapes in purity.
