Rao is a jewel, a small precious stone, set among the Caiatine hills, unspoilt area of the hinterland of Campania. Here Franco Rao, passionate about agriculture and history, has replanted his own cultural roots. He has recreated a natural and ideal habitat to produce wines that would bring him back to the perfect realm, the countryside of Campania. Black and White Pallagrello and Casavecchia are the typical varieties of this region and Franco has focused heavily on them, supported by the results achieved by area wineries and convinced of their ability to develop great quality and uniqueness. This is the real trump card for an Italian winery and even more so one in Campania. Although we have worked together for only two years, there is an empathic harmony that has led the winery to immediately embark on the best path to reach their qualitative and philosophical goals as quickly as possible.
