                                                                                IGT Lazio Rosso

 

Eleonora is youthful, fresh and fruity at the same time but also powerful and elegant with a fine texture. Its combination of Merlot and mature Sangiovese provides a mellow structure with a full flavour. An ideal accompaniment to food without being too assertive.

Tasting notes:      Dense ruby red, sweetness up-front and fragrant on the nose, with a cherry liqueur top note, mellow structure with full flavour, fresh energetic acidity.

                                                                               IGT Lazio Rosso

 

Letizia is a typical Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon and shows lots of strength and pedigree. With its subtle sweetness, the wine remains typically Italian with richness and creaminess.

Tasting notes:      Spicy fruity nose, dense body in the mouth, a very tight-knit palate with plenty of powerful full flavour, interplay of sweet dark berry extract and fine acidity in the finish.

                                                                             IGT Lazio Bianco

 

Filippo’s character is defined by two grape varieties – Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The former contributes body and full-bodied juiciness, the latter intense flavours and spiciness.

Tasting notes:      Fresh, fruity, pronounced spiciness and mineral flavour due to the volcanic soil, the Sauvignon Blanc dominates the bouquet with herbs and fruit, grassy notes, considerable fullness with melting texture.

Grape varieties:  Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

                                                                                    TADZIO

                                                                             IGT Lazio Rosato

 

The rosé Tadzio is pressed from Aleatico grapes. Its bright colour, between buckthorn and coral, is a joy to be seen on any summer deck. This vibrant rosé has an exceptional amount of flavour and is a good choice for red wine drinkers too, who like to enjoy a chilled wine in the summer.

Tasting notes:      Distinct bouquet of roses coupled with fruity elegance, juicy with an authentic note from the berried fruit of the Aleatico, taut minerality of the volcanic soil; herbs, flowers, and fine fruit in the finish.

Grape varieties:  Aleatico.

                                                                                IGT Lazio Rosso

 

With Maddalena the Aleatico grape is the star. Clear and ripe with a brilliant ruby red, this dessert wine makes its mark with a fantastic interplay of acidity, fruitiness and subtle sweetness. A versatile companion to round off a good meal.

Tasting notes:     Intense, strong bouquet with fresh aromatic notes and a slight scent of roses, clear, ripe and fruity, elegant and balanced in the mouth, the complex tannins give it a pleasantly dry finish.

Grape varieties:  Aleatico.

                                                                                     LORENZO

                                                                               IGT Lazio Bianco

 

An unusual spumante or sparkling wine, which is pressed from the Aleatico grape, which is not otherwise used for sparkling wines. Lorenzo has an exceptionally fruity flavour with a dense mineral structure and a fine herbal spiciness.

Tasting notes:      Vinous, inviting, slight herbal notes and playful fruitiness, aftertaste of mineral structure and refined spiciness, which comes together smoothly in a dry and sparkling finale.

Grape varieties:  Aleatico
