Cabernet Sauvignon I.G.P. Lazio

Cabernet Sauvignon, praised by Pliny the Elder in his monumental work Naturalis Historia, under the name of Biturica because it was cultivated by the Bituriges who lived on the northern side of the Pyrenees at that time. Adaptable to almost any climatic condition, here it has found warm and sunny terrains, ideal for the production of red wines with great structure and longevity.
