La Pietra is an historical Ischia island winery that ceased to operate when Tommaso Monti died in the 80's. Antonio, Tommaso's son at the time was in Germany running a small hotel and restaurant. In 2000 he decided that was time to spend his efforts on the land and vines he inherited. With the help of Renato Germini from Friuli they renovated the winery in order to have available the state of the art technology while respecting the traditional winemaking techniques. Lucia, Antonio's daughter, took over the operation in the vineyards and in the winery since 2008. The vines (total extension is 12 acres for a production of almost 40 thousand bottles) are trained with a single Guyot trelling system with a maximum of 5 buds per vine. That ensures to get the best quality bunches from the vines. The altitude (over 600ft), the soil - the typical "tufo verde" green tufa - a siliceous calcareous and friable rock coming from volcanic eruptions plus clay sediments on the top, the constant presence of some breeze and - of course given the position - of the sun are all indication of high potential wines.

Crazy Angels comes from an expression of Gino Veronelli, a famous Italian wine journalist, that used to call 'Angeli Pazzi' artisanal winemakers, as they were heroes to him. This wine is made by Lucia with some of her newly acquired vineyards, using Falanghina, Biancolella, Fiano grapes. The wine has a straw yellow color with orange peel scents and a refreshing lemon zest aroma. It pairs well with light seafood, shellfish, light fresh cheeses and most appetizers.
