Producer: This famous appellation from the volcanic hills surrounding Rome finds a consistently good producer in Gotto d’Oro, the first winegrowers’ association in the region.

Vineyard: The grapes come from vineyards in the northern most part of the Castelli Romani in Lazio, where the vines enjoy a fresh and sufficiently humid climate. The vineyards are at altitudes of 300-400 metres, with volcanic soil rich in potassium and phosphorus.

Winery:  The wine underwent a straightforward fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a fairly early bottling with no oak ageing to preserve the freshness and fruit.

Taste: Fresh, lively nose with notes of grapes and nuts; delicate, well-balanced palate with a good persistent finish.
