Most importantly fantastic vineyards which are located at the tail end of the Appenines in the foothills. The highly talented winemaker Marco Giulioli is aided by Southern Italy's most renowned oenologist Riccardo Cotarella and together their combined expertise and knowledge of the region has led them to create a range of contemporary yet traditional wines.
