gillo dorfles


IGP Paestum Aglianico

Gillo Dorfles was a genius of the Italian ‘900, in love with Paestum and the majesty of its history. He spent his summers between art, the sea, the temples. And in our vineyards. Ruby in color, it is a red wine of important caliber, after an aging of 24 months in French oak barrels, which aims to conquer from the first glass but also to be able to challenge time. Just like Gillo.

to the nose
