Lazio is one of the 20 Italian regions. Located in central Italy, with Rome as the capital, wine has been produced here since ancient times.
The wine history of this region tells of successes and centuries of great enological productions. Then the decline of the last decenn until the 90s, which can be remembered as the “renaissance” of Lazio viticulture. The present is developing under the banner of a great desire for revenge and the future is bright.
