Secutor Falanghina del Sannio DOP Bio cl. 0,75
The SECUTOR gives our wines the right doses of grit taste-olfactory and biting combiveness”.
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.
