Details of wine
The Castello di Lispida farm is located in Monselice, at the foot of the Euganean Hills. The cellar is led by Alessandro Sgaravatti, a pupil of Gravner and therefore a deep admirer of the ancient production in amphorae.
The land on which the vineyards extend is not subjected to processing, chemical herbicides are prohibited and an attempt is made to preserve the balance of the vine with its ecosystem. To ensure healthy growth of the vines, a hundred nests of different animals have been placed which will contribute to the creation of an ideal environment for the ripening of the grapes
Amphora Bianco was born in 2003 and is one of the first Italian whites to be entirely produced in terracotta amphorae. Simple and versatile wine, with an intriguing drink with a long and persistent finish.
A white produced following ancient techniques that are now back in fashion.

The long history of Ispida is documented as far back as 1150 in an edit of Pope Eugene the 3rd. In this document the Pope confirms the Augustine monastic order as the rightful owner of the hill and the church dedicated to St. Mary of Ispida. The Monastery of Lispida, built in this secluded and tranquil spot, has always boasted an enchanting atmosphere; its soil is also fertile, proving ideal for vines and olive groves. Lispidas life as a monastery comes to end in 1792. The property was then bought by the earls Corinaldi, who built the buildings we now see on the foundations of the ancient monastery. The new owners also added the massive wine-cellars and began producing wines renowned throughout Europe. During World War I Lispida Castle became King Vittorio Emanueles headquarters. Towards the end of the 50s, the castles wine-making activity was given a new lease of life by planting new vines and working to develop and conserve pre-industrial wine-making methods.
