About 0.9  Km from the Fabro Scalo roundabout you'll find on he right the country road to PODERE MARONE, that you should see in front of you at the top a hill.

By keeping on the same Parrano road, at about 2 km from the roundabout you'll find on the left the iron gate and the cypress-lined road leading to the CANTINA MUROGROSSO.
