Monserrato 1973

The Monserrato company was born in 1973 from an intuition of Cavalier Francesco Zecchina, a Neapolitan building builder, passionate about wines, who a few years earlier decided to follow his passion on the hills around Benevento, at the foot of Monte Serrato, arranging a ruin dating back to 1962 Irpinia earthquake. With the help of a young friend and farmer he began by planting tobacco and olive trees, halfway up the hill, on an area of about 60 hectares fed by spring water. At the end of the 1980s, production was basically tobacco, olives and grapes. Oil and wine were produced mainly for family use and given to friends and relatives, much appreciated gifts that were then requested with grateful solicitude.

After a period of transition, the management of the company is now entrusted to Paola, Francesco’s daughter, and her son Lucio. In recent years, a corporate restructuring process has been initiated aimed at introducing new native vines, expanding the olive-growing area and replacing tobacco production with various arable crops from organic cultivation, a sincere expression of the territory. Currently, three oil labels and a line of six wines are produced from the company’s olive groves and vineyards.

WINES

The vineyards from which we produce the grapes for our wines are located on our estate at the western end of the municipality of Benevento, in the La Francesca district, on the road that leads to Pietrelcina. The whole property is characterized by a gentle slope that becomes slightly harsher in the particles from which we obtain the Falanghina grapes. The individual vineyards, from the oldest to the youngest of the 2000s, have all been planted in the best exposures,
from south / west to south / east, orienting the rows from north to noon. The agronomic management respectful of the environment and the particular characteristics of our soils, calcareous tufaceous with multicolored clays, give the wines shelf life and a pure and tasty character, which evolves in elegance with time.
