In San Marzano, the history of viticulture is more than a thousand years old and can be seen in its oldest vineyards, which are rich in centuries-old clones. From this precious heritage of vineyards that are more than sixty years old comes a wine that is the most beautiful story our territory has to tell.

About Wine
