Basilicata Rosato IGT
Sagaris was a freed slave, mentioned in a Latin inscription, found in the streets of Venosa; he is described as an attentive and trusted conductor of his master land. With the same care and with our complete dedication to work both in the vineyard and in the cellar, we want to recall his name and example.
