Re Manfredi, was established in 1998 in the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture DOC production zone just a few kilometres from Venosa, a little town renowned as the birthplace of the famous Latin poet, Horace.
Re Manfredi’s location draws from an unusual microclimate at the foot of Mount Vulture which offers fabulous light, a continental climate and soil rich in clay, calcium, nitrogen and tuff, mixed together with the now extinct volcano’s lava. The winery comprises of an elegant and welcoming Masseria (farmhouse) which stands out in the centre of the property. The 120 hectares of vineyards remain trained in the Guyot and spurred cordon style, as designed in 1998. Alongside the Masseria stands a dynamic winery, modern vinification plant and a prestigious barrique cellar.
The vineyards are almost entirely cultivated with the Aglianico vines: 30 ha with twenty-year-old plants trained in Guyot style and 10 ha of ten-year-old vines trained in Spurred Cordons at an altitude of 420 m a.s.l. in the Commune of Venosa.
