Americo comes from the north-western side of the hills of Orvieto, where the vineyard borders “Torre della Fame”, an ancient Templar fortress overseeing the road that connected the Teutonica road and the Francigena road. The fortress takes its sinister name from a violent episode occurred in March 1351, when the Monaldeschi della Cervara soiled their hands with a foul deed, starving several members of Melcorini family to death.
