Marzo Taurasi Horeca Albertus
Taurasi is a village that lies about half an hour from Tufo, it is a little lower and specialises in Aglianico, the most prestigious of Campania’s red wines. This is why Ferrante has established an excellent source of Aglianico from Montemarano and Luogosano. It is a wine that must be aged for three years, one of which must be in wood before being released. Di Marzo ages the wine for one year in barrique barrels, which range from one to three years old.
