Bosco de’ Medici agricultural company was founded in 1996.In the eight hectares of vineyards, divided into small parcels – within the territory of Mt. Vesuvius, jagged in itself – we practice an ancient viticulture, that can be defined heroic, in some ways, on the so-called vines “a piede franco” and pre-fillossera, on a pyroclastic soil. A vineyard park, whose most recent plant dates back to the mid-80s. The wine making is a tradition that comes from afar and it has been testified by the discovery of a stone inside the vineyard, on which there was engraved a specigic symbol. The following studies confirmed that those lands were property of a branch of a noble family from Florence, the De’ Medici, that moved to Naples during the mid-sixteenth century, in order to modernize and improve the cultivation techniques and the quality of the Vesuvius wines.
An important heritage, that we have collected and carried on with dedication during the years, taking care of the lands and producing fine grapes that, from the 2014 harvest, we have used to produce our own wines. The produced wines are the results of a philosphy of production having as its principles the following elements:
The millenary experience of Vesuvian wines
The uniqueness of the Vesuvius terroir, as the only active volcano in continental Europe
Concepts of “cru” and zoning
Sustainability (Biological, Biodynamic, Radiance)
All these elements are supported by a continuous agronomic and oenological study on the raw material and wines. This project represents the construction of a structured cellar to house the wines from the single parcel, with containers suitable for the purpose. Finally, the return to ancestral agricultural practices recalls the tradition and the memory of places where farming was practiced 3000 years ago. Biodynamic, instead, represents the regulating principle of everything. These practices reconnect the man’s interpretative abilities to the nature itself.
