GULIELMUS

Taurasi Riserva Docg

Goleto and Gulielmus are inspired to a magical place, wrapped in light and mystery: the Goleto Abbey.
The abbey was built in the XII century by Saint William (Gulielmusin latin); partially destroyed by the earthquake in 1980,
Goleto preserved its timeless beauty and remains today an emblem of Irpinia.
Through their iconic names, these two wines celebrate the magic and the authentic heritage of Irpinia.

Gulielmus comes from a 2-hectare vineyard in Taurasi, in the Sala district, where the soil is clayey and the unilateral guyot vines have been planted, starting from 1992, with buds harvested from the old prefillossera vineyards. The harvest is done by hand, between mid-October and early November.
After fermentation in steel, the wine ages for 18/24 months in barriques and again in the bottle for over two years.

A very positive vintage for the Taurasi area in general. In particular, the spring and summer
were wonderful with no heavy rainfall and fresh evenings even in July and August.
September was hotter than average. The Gulielmus vineyard was harvested on October 26th.
Minimal, joyful, assertive.
