Established in 2000, the family initially considered selling their ancestral vineyards but had a change of heart. They decided to invest in the land and embrace their connection to the Vulture region.
With a clear vision, they focused on crafting a singular wine label: “TITOLO.” This wine was envisioned as a premier offering, representing the exceptional qualities of Aglianico and the distinct terroir of Vulture. Situated in the mountainous inland area at an elevation of 600 meters, the vineyards benefit from volcanic soil, rich in minerals. These unique characteristics lend their influence to the wine’s aromas and flavours.
Guided by their passion, Salvatore Fucci and his daughter Elena diligently nurture the remarkable and unparalleled characteristics of the wine. Together, they work harmoniously with the renowned Aglianico del Vulture grape, harmonising tradition and innovation.
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most widespread wines in the world and we can find endless interpretations of this noble grape that is thought to have been born in the Loire, although some theories state it is originally from Bordeaux.
The origin of its name derives from “sauvage” (wild) due to its origins of native plant of the French south-west. It can do well in cooler areas within Europe, including parts of Austria and Hungary.
In New Zealand, it produces a stunning array of pungently, assertive characters, from the green grass and asparagus flavours to the more tropical, ripe spectrum of grapefruit, passion fruit and mango.
The Sauvignon cause has also been taken up to good and affordable effect by Chile and South Africa, whose cooler spots are proving ideal for this wonderfully zingy, fresh grape variety. In Italy, Sauvignon Blanc has found fertile ground on the marl and sandstone of the hills of Collio Goriziano and the Colli Orientali del Friuli, where it dominates together with the Friulano, making Friuli an obligatory destination for every white wine lover.
