Cilento is a coastal area south of Naples protected by a national park designation and has been recognized as a World Heritage Site of UNESCO. Maffini’s wines are equally distinctive, crafted with an eye to terroir, minerality and elegance. Luigi and Raffaella Maffini first bottled Kratos in 1996 using fruit from a small family vineyard planted in the 1970s. They gradually grew their estate to 15 hectares and have gained more plaudits with every subsequent vintage. The vineyards lie in two distinct zones: the first overlooking the sea near Castell’abate, the second in the hills of Giungano near Paestum. The Aglianico grapes are destemmed and crushed followed by 6 days of maceration in stainless steel tanks.
