The climatic and pedologic characteristics of this territory are similar. The hills stretching from Montefi ascone to Orvieto are partly volcanic partly sedimentary in origin and both kinds of soil are particularly suited to the growing of vines as witnessed by the century-old tradition of the zone. In his book The foreign varietals cultivated in Italy S. Mondini affirms that as early as the 19th century several foreign varietals were cultivated in Lazio, some in quite remarkable proportions and specialized in the vineyards... Cabernet, Carignane, Gamay, Grenache, Merlot, Malbeck, Pinot, Sauvignon, Syrah... Lazio generally proves to be an area where the advantages from the cultivation of the foreign varietals are remarkable, especially for what concerns the ones coming from France.. In the countryside surrounding Rome, Frosinone and Viterbo it’s widely held that they contribute to the improvement of the local wine production. Read less

Dried apricot and lemon character on the nose, with hints of mineral. Medium-bodied, with an oaky, creamy vanilla character, combined with the fruit. Straightforward. Drink now.

Aromas of apple, peach and honey follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of fruit and a long, crisp finish. Lively and delicious. Drink now.

The crisp, elegant 2005 Vitiano Bianco, an equal part blend of unwooded Vermentino and Verdicchio, offers loads of tropical fruit, good body, impressive purity (a hallmark of all the Cotarella wines), and impeccable balance as well as length. It provides a heck of a glass of dry white for the price! It should be drunk during the first year of life. Kudos to Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella for continuing to deliver remarkable wines at these prices.

The 2007 Vitiano Bianco is 50% Vermentino and 50% Verdicchio aged in steel. It reveals a generous personality imbued with floral, honeyed peaches, not to mention terrific balance and poise at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2009.
