The company that produces this label is Cantine di Marzo
In 2009 the Cantina di Marzo passed into the hands of the current owner, Ferrante di Somma, descended from the maternal grandmother, from the Di Marzo family, giving the company a new imprint, where the philosophy is to strategically target zoning, once to enhance more and more the particularities and uniqueness of the Tufo terroir. The 23 hectares of vineyards of the Greco and Aglianico farm, each with its own specific identity, extend in particular in the San Paolo and Santa Lucia districts and in the municipality of Tufo, at an altitude ranging from 250 to 500m above sea level. The soils are mainly of medium mixture of clay, limestone and, above all, fossil sulfur with which Tufo soils are particularly rich, a characteristic that makes the wines produced here unique.
