La Fortezza

(TORRECUSO – BENEVENTO) Enzo Rillo and his staff deal with autochthonous Campania wines, such as Falanghina, Greco, Fiano and finally Aglianico within the Taburno Regional Park. 

La Fortezza’s History and Philosophy

We are in Torrecuso in Tora in the province of Benevento , inside the Taburno Regional Park , on the slopes of Mount Taburno. A land of vineyards in which the production of grapes amounts to about 95,000 quintals, made of fine wines DOC and DOCG Aglianico, Falanghina, Piedirosso, Fiano .

But the Benevento arena is well known that it covers a wine production of about 40% of the entire area planted with vines in the Campania region , these are numbers that attest to a great economic, commercial and oenological reality.

Characters like Enzo Rillo , at the helm of the La Fortezza company , which is based in Torrecuso, are used to entrepreneurship of a certain level and in these contexts they find their natural habitat in the investment of time and energy, in a activities such as viticulture, moved in the case of Rillo, by the love of the land and its peasant origins, which have forged him and made him today a conscious and successful entrepreneur.

The wines of La Fortezza

In the cellar , entirely covered in stone and well integrated into the surrounding landscape, thanks to the partnership with the winemaker Vittorio Festa and the continuous research and experimentation, on the 65 hectares of vineyards surrounding the cellar, the company enjoys continuous growth, also due to the land on which the vineyards are located, which by exposure, altitude and care, produce a convincing wine, made from native grapes of the area: Aglianico del Taburno , Falanghina del Taburno Greco and Fiano , which go to form that particular line , valuable and with a wide offer ranging from the Classic Line , to the Young Line , to the Bubbles and Liquors.

And last but not least, the pride of the company are the flagships: the sparkling Falanghina , the sparkling Aglianico and the highly prized ” Maleventum “, a brut of Falanghina obtained with the long charmat method.
