The "SECUTOR" hunter or pursuer, was a gladiator of some Samnite origin in Roman times. Choice born from the need to draw attention to a page of the millenary history that belonged to an interesting territory, rich in tradition and culture which is certainly the Sannio.


The “SECUTOR” hunter or follower, was a gladiator of Sannites origin, in Roman times. Employed in gladiator games, he armed himself with the rectangular scutum and the agile curved short sword; his adversary was the retiarius, a gladiator generally armed with the net, in which the secutor was rarely caught, but he was able to follow him quickly, gaining ground till he deliver the final blow. The choice of the names for the Falanghina and Sannio Rosso, for the two top wines of the Samnes series, derives from the need to recall attention to an important page of the millennial history which was part of a territory, filled with as much tradition and culture as the Sannio certainly is.
