Corte dei Papi

Lazio, Italy

Corte dei Papi has 50 acres of vineyards, planted predominantly with Cesanese d'Affile and Cesanese Comune, two clones of the same varietal.

From these historic vineyards, Corte dei Papi reinterprets the native Cesanese varietals and Passerina del Frusinate, this is a native variety from South of Rome, the legend says that it derives from a sparrow (i.e. passero in italian) that used to eat exclusively the passerina berries. When mature, the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified immediately after, using modern winemaking techniques that capture the full potential of these varietals.
