In a sleepy corner of northern Campania, secular chestnut trees and vines intersperse the flanks of the dormant volcano of Roccamonfina. Cacciagalli’s essence is vines grown on volcanic soils, and a cellar of thick-lipped amphorae sweating the fragrance of Campania’s native grapes.  Since the 17th century, Diana Iannancone’s family have been the caretakers of this ancient masseria (farmstead). 

‘Mille’ is a reference to the revolutionary Garibaldi and his 1000 “soldiers,”
which he gathered along the road from Ligura to the south.  Muted
blackberries here, the tobacco, the grip and release of bitter bass notes
with a thrush of low alcohol freshness.  DELICIOUS!!!
