Claudio Quarta’s vineyard consists of small plots of land totalling about 22 hectares: 10 extend around the winery, divided between the areas of Tufo, where the prized Greco is grown, the area of Lapio in the heart of the DOCG Fiano d’Avellino for growing Fiano and the area of Paternopoli in DOP Irpinia Aglianico, dedicated to the cultivation of DOCG Taurasi and Aglianico. The other 12 hectares, planted with Falanghina and Aglianico, constitute a single holding situated in Pietrelcina, Benevento area. Perfectly integrated with the landscape, Cantina Sanpaolo is in a hilly area between the provinces of Avellino and Benevento.
Here the white grapes that give rise to Fiano di Avellino DOCG, Greco di Tufo DOCG, Falanghina IGP, along with the precious Aglianico that helps create the most prestigious Taurasi DOCG are all produced. This is a unique area with an extraordinary variety of land ranging from clayey, to sandy, to limestone with influences of volcanic ash from Vesuvius. Here the vineyards are planted up to 700 meters above sea level where notable temperature variations from day and night enhance the aroma of the grapes.
