Looking to Buy Italian Wine?

I used to only buy Italian wine that came from the north and Tuscany, that was before I lived in Italy. Now I realize just how many estates in places like Sicily, Apulia and the areas around Rome and Naples are producing great wines...

Donato Giangirolami is one such winemaker.

His winery is nestled in the charming countryside a little to the south of Rome.

The family inherited a great tradition of wine making and an exceptional terroir which they are now combining with modern technologies and innovations. The results have been outstanding...

Where to Stay

If you would like to visit this winery and the nearby region then I'd suggest you stay in nearby Rome. These are a few really excellent hotels in Rome well worth considering.

About the Estate

The family farm is made up of three vineyards, two you will find near Castelli Romani and the other is just south of Aprilia. Tradition is very important to the family and the vineyards are worked as they were in centuries past with no chemical pesticides or fertilizers used, even irrigation is not used unless in cases of drought or exceptional circumstance.

Peschio

A ruby red wine made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Syrah. The wine has an intense and persistent nose of berry and chocolate. On the palate it is elegantly spicy, intense and with hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper. Ideal with spicy meat dishes.

Prodigo

Made from 100% Syrah this wine has a strong nose, full of blackberry fruit with interesting spicy notes. This is a wine that is easy to drink with good acidity and refined tannins, finishes are wonderfully long and lingering. Serve with red meat and seasoned cheeses.

Petit Verdot and Syrah go together to produce this ruby coloured wine packed full of blackberry and plum with a long fruity finish
