TEMPA DI ZOÈ - ASTERÌAS FIANO 2020
Generous and savoury coastal Fiano, fruity impact of citrus and white peach, nuances of chamomile and honey. Fresh, sapid, very long on the palate with perfect correspondence between nose and mouth.
Asterìas means starfish in Greek. It is the company’s first white wine, and is made from Fiano grapes. The star symbolises guiding light, but it also speaks of the inspiration that comes from Monte Stella, a massif in Cilento National Park that towers 1131 metres above sea level. Its peak looks down on our vineyard, nestled between the mountain and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
ORIGIN Campania, Italy
MAKER Tempa di Zoè
The name Tempa di Zoè refers not only to a physical place; it is, above all, a declaration of intent. “Tempa” is the word for the rolling hills of Cilento that stretch down to the sea from north to south. Zoè is the Greek word for the essence of life, the universal principle common to the animal, vegetable and mineral worlds.
Tempa di Zoè’s new project, Quattro Vigne – “four vineyards” – is founded on the work of four partners: the Campania winery Feudi di San Gregorio, Francesco Domini, Vincenzo D’Orta and Bruno De Conciliis.
They are united by the single goal of calling new attention to a land that is naturally excellent for wine: Cilento. This wine carries on the work begun by D’Orta and De Conciliis, now involving Feudi di San Gregorio and Francesco Domini, himself intimately tied to Cilento, the land of his birth.
