Paolo Leo, born in 1960, was born into a family where producing wine was an inevitable legacy; in the early 20th century, the forefather began to vinify his grapes in the Monticello Masseria, then his son Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the palmento (the first stone building used to produce wine) in the village.
Today he is still an heir, the namesake Paolo Leo, son of Nicola, to lead the new winery, together with his wife Roberta and his eldest sons Nicola and Stefano, who are paving the way for the younger brothers Francesco and Alessandro.
