About the Producer

The "Azienda Agricola Ciccio Zaccagnini" was founded in 1978 and today produces approximately 1,200,000 bottles per year. Under the guidance of its winemaker, Concezio Marulli, the company applies the most up-to-date wine-making technologies and implements a total quality control system throughout the entire production process.

The history of the Zaccagnini vinery is rooted in the passionate relationship between man and nature, wine and arts, celebrated year after year, in November, with "Uvarte".
