It is located in the Rionero in Vulture, in the province of Potenza, Monticchio Bagni area, close to the famous volcanic lakes and the springs where some of the most appreciated Italian mineral and oligomineral waters originate. Ruggiero Potito, along with his family, settled here because he firmly believed in the power of his land to give incredibly precious fruits. He has been giving passionately to this vineyard, since his teenage years, giving birth to the company whose main purpose is to properly value this great and ancient viticulture.
