Lazio whites to buy
Malvasia, Grechetto, Viognier, Passerina... let's let Lazio's whites tempt us.
Without going too far away from Monte Porzio Catone, let's go to a winery on Appia Antica, on Via di Fioranello, to meet the story of a prince in love with his vineyards, bottles of character capable of seducing Gino Veronelli already in the seventies. Today to inherit this passion, with Tenuta di Fiorano, is Alessandrojacopo Boncompagni Ludovisi, great-grandson of Prince Alberico, who with love, dedication and delicacy has brought back to life the great wines of Fiorano. Important and concentrated wines the two Fiorano, agile and slim the two Fioranello, all united by the common thread of elegance.
Let's now leave the province of Rome to get to Anagni. Marcella Giuliani is a lady who strongly felt the "call of her own roots" and she dedicated herself to the company which comes from a large latifundium estate owned by the family since 1870. During the years the activity has been mainly focused on arboreal cultivations (vineyards, olive groves) and related products, limiting the use of pesticides and fertilizers up to the organic certification. Cesanese and passerina are the grapes cultivated.
Still in Ciociaria, in the heart of Cesanese appellation, Paolo Perinelli cultivates his own grapes and produces his own wine, thus giving life to Casale della Ioria winery. Vineyards are located at an altitude of 400 meters (1,640 feet), among woods and olive groves, in those areas where his grandfather already produced wine in the twenties. Today Paolo is the one who keeps the company running by cultivating with care the local varieties, first of all the Cesanese, of which he is a great expert, but also passerina and olivella, the latter a local variety which was forgotten among the hills of the area.
