Located in Torrecuso, in the province of Beneveno, Fattoria La Rivolta consists of hilly lands that range in altitude from 300 to 600 meters.

Aglianico is a type of grape brought over by the Greeks, whose name of “Hellenic Grape” was transformed during the Kingdom of Naples in to “Aglianico grape” by the Aragonese, because of their pronunciation of the double “l” in “gl”.
