Maria Ernesta Berucci.

Profile

Maria Ernesta Berucci is a young woman from the gorgeous Hernican town of Piglio, about an hour southeast of Rome at the foot of the Apennine mountains. Vines have always been in her father's family, the Massimi Berucci, and at one time her father Manfredi owned as much as 30 hectares. Manfredi was the head of the Cantina Cooperativa di Piglio from the early 60's up until 1972. In 2004, he created a new entity called Emme and almost all of the family vines transferred to this group with the exception of a beautiful, 1.5 hectare vineyard of more than 50-year-old vines, grown in pergola adjacent to their home in the countryside of Colli Santi (holy hills).
