rolling picturesque Crati hills near the city of Rende. However, it wasn’t until 386 years later, when his descendants’, twins
Alessandro and Pierfrancesco Giraldi took their passion for wine and viticulture and used the land that has remained in their
family to create the Cantine Giraldi & Giraldi Winery in 2008.
