Viognier I.G.P. Lazio

Viognier, planted and spread throughout the northern part of the Rhone Valley by the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Probus, has become widespread across Lazio in recent years with exciting results. We are cultivating it on our land, where the grapevine has been flourishing for thousands of years, trying to convey the characteristics that only a unique territory can give.
