D'Arapri Srld’Araprì sparkling wines are produced in Capitanata in Puglia, a land that is dry and generous. The fertility of this land is favored by the soil composition, exposure and climate. Given its conformation, this land imposes a limited but great quality production. Capitanata is inclined to the cultivation of vines: it is not subjected to frost, as it is protected by the mountains of Majella and the Gargano Promontory, and the wind does not cause the development of mildews and poor rainfall. The soil is limestone-clay with silt and sand, it has an altitude between 80 and 100 m., and a slight slope, it is usually very sunny and its temperature has small variations during the day. The well-endowed lands with limestone and organic matter have a high water capacity, allowing a regular ripening of the grapes. On these grounds the grapes grow slowly, without sudden jerks, avoiding reduction of acidity degree and loss of aromatic components. The quality of wine is born first in the vineyard: the best wine, in fact, you get to come to perfectly ripe grapes, produced from vines selected depending on the climate and soil conditions of the area where it will grow, cultivated with care and passion that devote to a garden, to get the best. The quality aim starts from the grape, “pergola pugliese” grown with a density of 3.500 branches per hectare. This low ratio allows an higher sugar content (which in not essential for the preparation of a basic wine) and mainly changes the ratio between the malie and tartaric acid, the most important thing for a very fine base wine with a low pH.

Masseria Amastuola Wine ResortThe vineyard, with its extension of more than 100 hectares of entirely organic farming, is situated in the heart of the Mediterranean in Puglia (Italy), on a plateau at an altitude of 210 meters above sea level, where the microclimate favours organic farming and precious minerals and nutrients of the terroir give the wines a very special aroma. The vineyard was established on the basis of a project aimed at enhancing the area towards sustainable development as to remove the “ghost” of abandonment that is undermining the future of agriculture and that of the South in particular. To this end has been recuperated non productive land by planting above all autochthon vines. To obtain the excellence of the grapes in each stage of production, we combine ancient skills and love for the land with the most modern technologies. Vines and grapes are cared in each phase of growth with traditional care. To protect the environment and saving water, the vineyard is equipped with a compensating drip irrigation system, used only in years of drought, to safeguard the quality of the grapes. Recently, in collaboration with University of Piacenza, an agrometeorological station has been installed in the vineyard. Through a management software it evidences periods of risk of vine parasites and the relative risk of infection, the current level of protection guaranteed by any previous treatment (depending on environmental conditions and development of the plant) and the optimal dose of product to distribute, thus reducing drastically the amount of defence products.

Masseria Li VeliIn 1999 the Falvo family, with over 40 years of experience in the wine business, purchased and renovated the property to give birth to an ambitious project in Apulia, a region with a long vine-growing tradition. Masseria Li Veli is located on an ancient Messapian site dominating the fertile and sunny Salento plain. It was founded by the Marquis Antonio de Viti de Marco (1858-1943), an internationally known Italian economist and university professor, Radical Party Deputy of the Reign of Italy, whose ambitious project was to transform the Masseria into a model cellar for the entire South. Today the beautifully restored Masseria covers an area of 33.000sqm, 3750 of which include offices, a reception area, vinification, storage and ageing cellars. All wines are produced in the large cellar built in a light coloured stone, carparo, similar to the local pietra leccese. Beyond the main entrance is the barrel cellar, protected by a large glass door and located on the ground level beneath groin vaults. An air-conditioning system set at 16° guarantees an ideal temperature. The total capacity of the cellar is of approximately 10,000 hectoliters, divided between steel vats and about 400 French oak barriques. The ancient storage cellar now houses modern fermentation tanks: eight horizontal submerged cap vats with a capacity of 125 hectoliters and ten vertical vessels with a capacity of 130 hectoliters, which allow pumping over with fractioned and programmed délestage, must aeration, total programme management and traceability of the vinification. Owing to the high flexibility of these machines the processing phases can be adapted and programmed according to the specific winemaking procedures of the various grape varieties. Bottling and storing of bottles for ageing takes place in the same building, in separate areas.
