Camerlengo

Camerlengo

Camerlengo is a beautiful reality located in Rampolla, in the province of Potenza. The name of the cellar is taken from the title of the Cardinal who administers the Apostolic Chamber and takes care of the temporal assets of the Holy See. Camerlengo is the dream transformed into reality by Antonio Cascarano, an architects profession in Rome who, driven by his passion, has decided to become a small, high quality wine businessman. Antonio started to renovate the old cellar and take care of the old vineyards of Aglianico inherited from his grandfather, who since 1900 produced wine and oil. The five hectares of organic-run vineyards are found on the potash and silicon fields of Monte Vulture, the volcano off Basilicata, in the middle of chestnut trees and olive trees. For the refurbishment of the cellar he used the pesto cake, a material used by the Romans. Spontaneous fermentations, indigenous yeasts and refinements in wooden barrels, this is the philosophy of Antonio for the production of his wines. To the two red wines produced with Aglianico, a third based on Malvasia of Rampolla, called "Accamilla", was dedicated to his bull dog, Camilla, who disappeared shortly ago.
