The property covers 360 hectares and the vineyards are located at 300 metres above sea level. The soil is poor and stoney. The vines are spur pruned and cordon trained and are planted at a density of 3,000 vines per hectare. Roscetto is a rare white variety, indigenous to Lazio, in particular the town of Montefiascone. It was close to extinction in the 1960s and was never been very popular with farmers because of its low yields. The name Roscetto refers to the pinky red colour the grapes turn when fully ripe, at which point they give the wines great fruit flavours to the wine.
