Ampeleia


Elisabetta Foradori

Ampeleia is not only an estate and a wine, but first of all the name of a project focused on the synergy between mankind and nature.

From the rocks of the medieval village of Roccatederighi, (originally an Etruscan settlement) the property slopes down towards the sea, nestled in a maze of numerous plots of land, hidden among the lush vegetation, where earlier settlers nourished the soil to grow grapes.

This wine expresses the character of our youngest vines, their “lightness”, their vitality.
