Terredora di Paolo
Pago dei Fusi Taurasi DOCG
Campania

The first vintage of Pago dei Fusi was produced in 2003. It is the result of painstaking research into orientation, chemical and physical characteristics of the terroir, and topography. Its personality, structure, and aromatic concentration are the primary features of Pietradefusi vineyards on top of the Calore hills river. “Pago dei Fusi” is indeed the ancient name of Pietradeifusi. “Pagus” is the latin term for the ancient roman rural districts outside the city borders.
