Owned by the Iorio family, Lauranti is located in Ponte, in province of Benevento, in Campania, in the area of the Taburno-Camposauro range. Pierluigi Iorio, representing the fourth generation, currently runs the company with the constant support of his whole family. A new company backed up by a long winemaking tradition.
The soil is suitable for the production of quality wines, and the vines farmed are the local Aglianico, Falanghina and Coda di Volpe in the Taburno regional park. Throughout a century, the vineyards have undergone transformations in both the grapes and the farming. The soil is rich in clay, sandstone, limestone, and pyroclastic debris coming from the volcanoes of Roccamonfina, in the form of tuft. Alongside the temperate climate, the great exposition sheltered from the winds, these features offer the vines the perfect productive balance.
The name of the company, Lauranti, recalls the local name for the workers who took care of the vines in the past. These strong traditions are put into effect in the three Denomination wines produced from the vines located at Coccialonga and Pezze, in Torrecuso, between 260 and 380 meters a.s.l.
The red Taburno DOCG 2012, 100% Aglianico, comes from the highest vine originally planted in 1975, spurred cordon trained. The Falanghina del Sannio DOP comes from the lower vineyard Torrecuso; planted in 2006, it is grown on vertical trellis and Guyot pruned. The same system applies to the third vine, Coda di Volpe Sannio DOP, planted in 2010.
All these wines are well structured and have low acidity. Although the production is not large, they are highly successful and promise to grow in the next few years.
