La Guardiense

This co-operative, one of the biggest in Italy, was founded in 1960 by 33 farmers and today has around a thousand growers tending some 1,500 ha of vineyards mainly on hilly soils at an average altitude of 350 metres.

The vineyards are protected from the Adriatic by the Matese mountain range and from the Bay of Naples by Monte Taburno. It is a climate without extremes. The winery is at Santa Lucia in Campania, north-east of Naples, and the vineyards are in the surrounding Beneventano province. They specialise in Falanghina, a variety indigenous to Campania – possibly dating back to Roman times – and Aglianico, and are also one of the largest producers of sparkling wines in southern Italy. They also grow plenty of the white varieties, Fiano and Coda di Volpe. Winemaking is overseen by Riccardo Cotarella, one of the best-known and most experienced winemaker-consultants in Italy. Great emphasis is placed on environmental sustainability at every stage in the winery, and they use their own photovoltaic system to produce renewable energy. Over the last 50 years they have adapted with market changes and embraced technology, combining modern methods with their wealth of experience, to epitomise the progress that has been made in the Beneventano region.

Vintage guide

A dry winter followed by a hot summer has certainly affected yields in 2022, but the quality looks excellent across the country. Small but perfectly formed seems to sum up the 2021 vintage here. Across most of the country the 2020 vintage is looking very good indeed with ripe fruit and lovely aromatics. A classic if not straight forward vintage 2019 has delivered some excellent wines but in smaller quantity. Overall, the results are very good in 2018, though a warm wet early summer led to disease pressures in many parts of the country. The Northeast, home to Prosecco amongst others did particularly well; so too did Tuscany and Piedmont but yields were a little down in some estates. 2017 saw a small crop of excellent wines; spring frosts and a later heatwave nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ reduced yields, but you’ll find good results on the whole with excellent results in Piedmont. Yields were down in 2016 but quality is high, Piedmont and Tuscany at least as good as 2015. 2015 is generally an excellent vintage across Italy, perhaps reds having the edge over whites. A year that necessitated a lot of work in the vineyards due to the rains, 2014 produced some surprisingly good results with elegant fresh wines across the country.
