Danilo Marcucci is not a just a winemaker.  He's a visionary, an enabler, a wealth of knowledge and experience gleaned from over 20 years of viticulture and cellar work. Today, Danilo works with roughly 10 small-scale, hyper-natural producers, largely concentrated in Umbria but with extensions to the Dolomites and Rome. These projects and collaborations are intimately tied to one another.  All the producers know each other, taste eachother’s wines, travel and learn together.  It's a rare, nay nonexistent, element of Italian Natural Wine that contributes to the overall betterment of all wines.
