Since 1800 Russo's family has been holding a small piece of land in the Taurasi area called "la Carazita".
In 1999 Ermanno Russo decided to make his dream to come true and started to re-plant the grape in the place were he was born, extending the estate and building the winery.
Aglianico is the best red autochtonous grape of Irpinia and here it finds it's natural "terroir", due to the argillous and limestone soil and the perfect position, covered by sun since dawn till sunset.
Russo Taurasi enters the marketplace in 2006 as family business. It's managed by Marcella Russo with the sister Cristina and her husband Claudio.
