Petit Verdot I.G.P. Lazio

Cesanese is the only autochthonous red grape variety of Lazio that has always been cultivated in the territory but qualitatively rediscovered only in recent years. At our winery, although it is a difficult grape variety, it has adapted extremely well to the loose, well drained soils and ideal exposure, conditions necessary to enhance its elegance and complexity.
