Located just a few kilometres from the center of Rome, the historic Tenuta di Fiorano resides between the Appian Way and the slopes of the so-called Roman Castles. The farming methods used have historically and rigorously been organic.
The fame of this 200-hectare estate - that aside from vineyards also has olive groves, cropland and pastures - is directly linked to the late Prince Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi, a gentleman who has deservedly become a legend. Prince Alberico fell in love with winemaking between the 1940s and the 50s and he continued to make wine until 1998 when, in ill health and disillusioned, he unexplainably uprooted almost all his vineyards, making an exit worthy of the reputation he had earned over the years. Four years later, his nephew Alessadrojacopo began to replant the historic and organic vineyards in the exact location as before, under Alberico's supervision and using his replanting rights.
The grapes are still today picked and pressed by hand and the wine is fermented in the Vecchia Cantina (Old Cellar) after which it is moved to the Cantina Storica (Historic Cellar) where it ages in old barrels.
