Tempa di Zoe’s Asterìas 6 means starfish in Greek. It was the company’s first white wine, and is made from the Fiano grape. The star symbolizes a guiding light, but it also speaks of the inspiration that comes from Monte Stella, a massif in Cilento National Park that towers 1131 metres above sea level. Its peak looks down on the vineyard, nestled between the mountain and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
