On these hills that seem to never end, close to an important wine, Aglianico del Vulture, Salvatore Fucci and his daughter Elena work with passion to improve the characteristics of this unmistakable and unique wine. Those characteristics do not exhaust themselves in the perfume or in colour, in clarity or in flavor, but they reside within the personality of the wine and only one wine.

The actual winery has been obtained from the old premises under the family residence (TITLE Tower) where the grandfather Generous placed the tractor and agricultural equipment.
Recently the new winery was completed, built adjacent to the old cellarand in communication by a tunnel dug in volcanic rock. The new structure is built according to the principles of ecological design using recycled materials and recycling and with technologies to reduce to zero the impacts and energy consumption.
