Claudio’s fascination with the expression of southern Italy's flavors and cultures moved him. In 2005, he left a successful career as a biologist, geneticist and microbiologist and returned to Italy with his family to begin his “second life” as a winemaker. Soon his daughter, Alessandra, fell in love with this vision and now works with Claudio to help manage the business. Together they established three masterpieces of wine in Puglia and Campania that intertwine autochthony, landscape and art: Tenute Eméra, Cantina Sanpaolo and Cantina Moros.
