Lazio is located in central Italy, bordering Tuscany to the north, Campania to the south, Abruzzo to the east and Umbria to the northeast. The volcanic hills provide an excellent base for viticulture thanks to the fertile and porous (well-drained) land. This type of soil is particularly suited to white grapes as it ensures a good balance of acidity.

Grape varieties

The region’s reputation is mainly based on its white wines, the mainstays being Trebbiano Malvasia di Candia and Grechetto. Although its red wines are not as high-profile, they are beginning to make a name for themselves, especially those made from Sangiovese, Cesanese, Montepulciano and Nero Buono di Coro.
