Tenuta Di Pietra Porzia – Our wines
Pietra Porzia is also one of the most renowned wineries in Rome. Here are some of our best wines: Frascati wine Doc and Docg, Castelli Romani, Lecino Doc Roma Rosso, Frascati Cannellino Docg.
For what concerns wine production, our policy can be easily summarized in the points: environmental sustainability, low sulfite wines, natural aromas of the native vines not altered by the aromas of the barriques woods.
A model of full sustainability
The vineyards of Pietra Porzia in the Frascati area are managed according to the principles of total sustainability linked to the protection of the surrounding landscape, the architectural structure of the winery, the cultivation of vineyards according to the EU standards of minimal environmental impact. To make our wines we can count on the help of local workers; they contribute to produce a wine with low sulfites, less than half of the maximum amount permitted by law.
To achieve these results, the vineyards of Pietra Porzia (more than 90 acres surrounding the cellar) are cultivated with mycorrhiza in order to obtain musts with a higher antioxidant power.
The harvested grapes are pressed within half an hour from the harvest with no adding of sulfites. The vinification happens inside steel barrels at a controlled temperature both for the white and red wines in order to obtain the natural aromas of the vine at the highest level avoiding any passage in wood. The total amount of sulfites is equal to less than 100 mg/liter, compared to the values of 150 for organic wines and 200 for normal white wines.
Frascati wines from native vines
Our vineyards unravel on a plot of land of volcanic origins, once part of the lake Regillo bottom. It means extremely fertile soils and a unique microclimate.
Frascati Doc and Docg Regillo come from vineyards owned by the company, planted with the ancient local native vines (Malvasia puntinata del Lazio, Greco, Bombino, etc.). This allows us to obtain the real, ancient Frascati wine, with its great structure and strong fruity aromas, intensified by the steel vinification at a controlled temperature, by low sulfites quantity (less than half of what is permitted by law, hence less than organic wines), and by the special ecological cultivation.
All wines are bottled in the company cellar.
The Regillo Docg Cannellino comes from a late harvest of Malvasia del Lazio Puntinata vine.
The Castelli Romani Rosso is obtained with Montepulciano, Cabernet, and Merlot.
The Lecino Doc Rome is absolutely unique for the presence of Lecinaro, an ancient vine recently rediscovered that has an intense aroma of cocoa and cherries in alcohol.
The micro-oxygenation of red wines and their long refinement in steel barrels allow us to obtain soft and structured wines with intense natural aromas, typical of the native vines. Our wines can be tasted in the tasting room annexed to the wine cellar during one of our private wine tours or in our typical Italian restaurant located inside our farmhouse near Rome Pietra Porzia.
