“Your name is Gerardo, just like mine” he said.
“That’s why my vineyards will be yours”.
Thinking back to my grandfather, a smile comes to my face as I reflect on how, after 30 years of all sorts of ups and downs,
I have gone back to my roots, proudly receiving my grandfather’s legacy to make in the focus of my entire life.

Welcome to Cantine del Notaio

The passion for winemaking is not new to the Giuratrabocchetti family and has been handed down for 7 generations.

The Company

From 1998, Cantine del Notaio enhances Aglianico del Vulture grape, combining tradition, innovation, history and culture.

Vines and Vineyards

The Aglianico grape has been known since ancient Greek times. Celebrated by the latin poet Horace, it grows at the slopes of the Vulcano, the Mount Vulture.

The cellars

Natural caves, dated 1600, cut into the volcanic Tufo rock, guarantee exceptional conditions for the ageing of wine. Our French oak barriques thus rest in a perfect balance of temperature, constant humidity and ventilation.


Our growing techniques are inspired by biological and biodynamic criteria, aimed at strengthening accumulation of both water and organic substance.
