pago dei fusi


Aglianico is a grape that must be loved to the full and Pago dei Fusi is the full outcome of such love, stimulating knowledge of this variety which, harvest after harvest, highlights the indissoluble bond between land, grape variety and human work. The harmonious combination of Aglianico grapes, soils and climate of the vineyards that dominate the hillsides on the left bank of the River Calore ensure that Pago dei Fusi achieves power and structure of exceptional elegance, complexity and longevity. The name of this wine refers to its place of origin and the great Roman tradition of the same name for rural districts, thereby celebrating the territory and the ancient splendor of the vine.
