About D.S. bio

Lazio, Italy

Since the beginning, the farm has chosen to focus on cultivating indigenous grape varieties that have been grown in this region for centuries. In particular, the farm grows white Maturano and Lecinaro grapes, whose genetic heritages have been saved from extinction thanks to the diligence of local farmers.

The wines of these vineyards express the full minerality of this region’s soil, due to the intense metabolic exchange between the vineyards and the mineral-rich terrain.
