Mount Vesuvius is a formidable, active volcano that has shaped the landscape around Naples for over 300,000 years. Today it is best known globally for the destruction it caused to Pompeii, yet locally it remains a prized agricultural spot. Vines and crops have been cultivated here for thousands of years, thriving in the fertile soils created by eruptions.

The Sorrentino family have cultivated land on Vesuvius’ southern slopes for decades. In the early 90s, Paolo Sorrentino and his wife Angela expanded their vineyards to 35 hectares of vines. The Sorrentino vineyards are planted between 200 and 700 metres above sea level on extremely heterogeneous volcanic soils. These are loose and complex, with pumice, sand and lapilli derived directly from a succession of eruptions. The resulting high porosity allows the vines to be grown without grafting.

The Latikadea is a 100% Falanghina grown at an elevation of 300 metres. It is fermented and aged in stainless steel, followed by an additional two years of ageing in bottle before release. It displays beautiful aromatics and remarkable structure, with an exceptionally long finish.

Latikadea is straw yellow in colour with green reflections. On the nose, it shows intense and complex aromas of citrus fruit, pineapple and mineral notes. On the palate, it is full-bodied, elegant, dry and persistent. The wine offers a pleasing balance between weight and freshness.
