Lazio’s bustling region is hilly, with pockets of small mountainous areas in the eastern and southern districts.
There are numerous ancient volcanoes that pepper the region making modern-day viticulture rich and complex. Along the coastline, Lazio has a typical Mediterranean climate, but as you shift inland towards the Apennine Mountains, the temperatures get cooler.
The Tiber River runs through Lazio until it drains into the Tyrrhenian Sea. The ancient volcanic hills that are sprinkled along the river provide well-drained, fertile, phosphorus-rich and porous land, delivering proper nourishment for the grapes. A combination of limestone, lava and tufa soils which are rich in potassium, have an affinity to white grapes, ensuring a delicate and complex balance of acidity.
Lazio’s typical Mediterranean climate of rainy winters and long hot summers make its terrain ideal for the cultivation of vines.
