CANESTRATO DI MOLITERNO IGP

Dating back to the 4th century AC , Wine-growers, shepherds, and farmers transformed milk into typical cane basket, named after them.

The production area includes several communes including Gorgoglione (Mt)  in the hinterland of Lucan region and it is here that the we as Guffanti select the best cured cheeses matured (special caves).
