"Our idea of wine is home soil, healthy grapes and
well cared for vines. These elements allow for the creation of a
wine fully reflecting its local characteristics."
Collefrisio is a young, forward thinking company located in the

make the company an overnight success in the winemaking
The estate's thirty-five hectares are divided into three
distinct vineyards. At the Guiliano Teatino vineyard (11 ha),
