The cellar is situated in the old homestead of Romano family and is surrounded by the vineyards which is used to produce this prestigious Aglianico. The processing of vineyards is done using Soccorso’s and his wife experience and from the agronomic knowledge of their son Enrico. The vinification process is based on the peasant art of making wine that Soccorso has learnt from his father and in collaboration with the oenologist Antonio di Gruttola.
SITUATED IN THE HEART OF MONTEMARANO, IL CANCELLIERE WORKS WITH AGLIANICO TO PRODUCE ONLY THE FINEST RENDITIONS OF THE GRAPE. BELIEVING IN THE QUOTE FROM GALILEO "WINE IS SUNLIGHT HELD TOGETHER BY WATER" THEY LOOK TO TAKE NOTHING MORE FROM THE GRAPE THAN NATURE INTENDS, PRODUCING BEAUTIFUL HONEST WINES THAT REPRESENT THE LAND FROM WHICH THEY ARE GROWN. IN THE CELLAR THEY USE ONLY OLD OAK TO INTENSIFY THE FLAVORS OF THE WINE WITHOUT AUGMENTING IT.
