Cantina Tollo Gufo Merlot

In central Italy there is fossil evidence of grapevines dating back two million years, but the first traces of agricultural activities oriented to grape cultivation itself date back to the end of the Bronze Age. In Abruzzo, the first evidence of wine production stretches back in pre-Roman times, with funerary pottery unearthed in the monumental cemeteries around L’Aquila.

In ancient Rome, an owl was the soul bird of Goddess Minerva.”Gufo” stands for Owl, the mysterious night creature moving at ease through the dark, in all times symbol of knowledge, wisdom and prophecy.
