Federico Graziani began in the world of wine very early, at the age of 15 he enrolled in sommelier courses and in 1998 at the age of 23 he won the competition for the best sommelier in Italy at 23. This allows him to gain experience alongside big names such as Gualtieri Marchesi, Stefano Cavallino, Bruno Loubet, Cracco Aimo and Nadia Moroni. Finally, in 2006 he deepened his studies and obtained a degree in Oenology and met Salvo Foti who pushed him to become a producer. By chance he learns of a centenary vineyard that was about to be uprooted in Passopisciaro, so he decides to buy it and a few years later his first wine is released: Profumo di Vulcano. The result of an encounter with the traditions and flavors of a unique territory.
