- Made from 100% Biancolella grapes from the single vineyard plot of the “lume” (light) of Ischia. The grapes come from an area on the east of the island, around 100 metres above sea level, known as Punta del Lume, hence the name of the wine.
- The uniqueness of this wine is in its production starting right from the harvest. The grapes are harvested slightly overripe and pressed in ancient tradition in small caves that are dug in the lapillus (fragment of lava). The must that is obtained remains cool in these caves for around 12 hours and is then transported by sea using small wooden boats to the village of Ischia Ponte. From there it is taken on to the Campagnano cellar for the vinification process.
