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

Lime leaf and lemons show up on the fruity yet restrained nose along with some light mineral and pollen floral notes. Lively on the palate, there's just a hint of flesh here wrapping up the energetic acids that support the simple citrus and white peach flavors here. Ending with a lovely hint of almond and pithy citrusy flavors on the modest finish, this is simple and refreshing. 84pts

Nice little Italian white blend of vermentino and verdicchio. Easy drinking, light and crisp with some light lemon, a touch of apricot, medium acidity and a short finish. This is a food friendly wine that went well with our chicken and dumplin's.

A fantastic value! Crisp and consistently interesting. Not a big wine but one that goes well with almost any non-red meat meal. I got it for $8. Adds variety to my chardonnay diet.

Bright straw hue, aromas of apples and floral; flavor notes of yellow apples, tree fruits with a creamy, mineral balance across the palate. A nice value dry Italian white with good acidity.

"soft-textured, caressing red that blossoms on the palate with layers of perfumed red fruit and sweet French oak" from Wine Advocate; high viscosity; great bargain

The 2004 Vitiano Bianco is a stainless steel-fermented and aged blend of equal parts Verdicchio, Viognier, and Vermentino. It offers up a perfumed nose of melons, cantaloupe, and a touch of lemon butter along with a lovely texture, light to medium-body, and a fresh personality. Drink it over the next year.

Zitrisch, blumig, mit einem Hauch von Stroh. Im Gaumen sehr frisch, körperbetont mit kräftigem aromatischen Finale.

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.

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.

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.
