The Marcella Giuliani winery was founded in 1997 but has been owned by the family since 1870. 40 hectares of vineyards are located on the hills of Anagni which rise towards Piglio (Frosinone) south east of Rome. This area is particularly suited to winemaking with a favourable climate, excellent ventilation and south east facing vineyards. Marcella Giuliani crafts wines using indigenous grapes such as Passerina del Frusinate and Cesanese d’Affile and are all certified organic.
