The whole territory of
Torrecuso is situated on the hillsides, which start from the river
Calore to the slopes of the Pentime Mountain. It is the
district of the Taburno which also includes the Tower Building.
The hillsides are sunny and covered with grapevines. Up to 50 years
ago, it was occupied by small farmers who cultivated everything with the
techniques of their times and their results are the satisfaction of
their fruits. In those days their crops were produced for the needs of
the family. Over the years, with the introduction of agricultural
machinery, it has allowed all of the farmers to improve their crops and
fields. In this land, a lot of faith and hard work has taken place to
improve the production of these wines; the hillsides are now noted for
the development of cultivating of the area of Torrecuso. With the
help of the local government, the hillsides are now producing the Wine "Aglianico".
