Masseria Frattasi is a historic winery in the Taburno area of Campania, Apennine territory in the province of Benevento that is volcanic in nature. The origins of this winery, located precisely in the town of Bonea, date back to 1779, and it is run by the Clemente family, represented today by Beniamino. Home to the estate is a beautiful 18th-century palace while the new stone and wood winery was designed with an eye toward environmental sustainability. In addition to vineyards, the property includes woods and olive groves, and the Clemente family can also boast some of the oldest vineyards in all of Campania, prefillosserica, more than two centuries old.

There are 35 hectares of vineyards available to the Masseria Frattasi winery, conducted following sustainable practices and dedicated to the traditional varietals Aglianico, Falanghina, Fiano, Greco and Coda di Volpe, flanked by a few allochthonous varieties such as Barbera, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. In addition to its ownership of the Taburno area, the estate cultivates vineyards on the island of Capri and in the municipality of Baselice, close to the border with Puglia. In general, altitudes reach as high as 900 meters above sea level and soils consist of clay and limestone, as well as deposits of volcanic origin. In the winery, the white grapes undergo pre-fermentation cryomaceration, with subsequent alcoholic fermentation taking place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for the red grapes as well. For subsequent maturation periods, French oak barrels or always steel containers are adopted.

Masseria Frattasi's wide and varied selection includes wines with a strong territorial imprint. Among the whites, the Falanghina del Taburno 'Donnalaura' stands out in particular, produced with a very late harvest of the grapes, with the berries frozen. The labels then depict the ceramic works of Giustiniani, a famous 18th-century potter who owned a workshop a few kilometers from the Masseria, colored in the classic yellow, green and blue of the Neapolitan tradition.
