Malvasia Puntinata is the most important native white grape of Lazio, cultivated for centuries on its volcanic hills. It was first described at the end of 1500 by Andrea Bacci, Botany Professor at the La Sapienza University, through his work “The Natural History of Wines”.
We produced a wine with respect to those who have traveled the history of our land over the centuries.
