Il Cancelliere is a wine company situated in the heart of Montemarano, in a zone particularly suted for the Taurasi production. The company was founded from Soccorso Romano, which has the same nickname, and it is family conducted. It was born from the desire to increase the value of our earth fruits and our work making discorvery ancient paesant traditions. The cellar is situated in the old homestead of Romano family and is surrounded by the vineyards which is used to produce our 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 paesant art of making wine that Soccorso has learnt form his father and in collaboration with the oenologist Antonio di Gruttola. In the cellar is mostly utilised “used wood” to exalt the perfumes and the aromas characterise grapes of this specific territory.
