“Aryete”, Caprettone, Vesuvio Bianco
From ungrafted vines in the commune of Tirone della Guardia, within the confines of Vesuvio National Park, “Aryete” is raised in a combination of used barrels and above-ground amphorae for six months. This more oxygenating regimen imbues the Caprettone with remarkable textural cling, as flavors of salt, peat, and stone nudge the fruit into the background. Its acidity is juicy rather than severe, and it finishes with striking length and mouthwatering minerality.
