Segreto Verde Verdicchio I.G.P. Lazio

Verdicchio, grape variety of ancient origin that the ancient Romans called virdis due to the characteristic color of the berries, was cultivated in the Roman countryside, where it was the reference white grape before the phylloxera crisis. At our winery we believe it can express the unique and irrefutable characteristics of the great white wine that it is.
