Piero Riccardi and Lorella Reale make up this duo of growers located on 5 hectares of land between the Aneine River Valley and the Prenestini Mountains just outside of Rome in Lazio. They farm biodynamically, enriching the method with their own theories and practices to make sure the local Cesanese grape is expressed with all of its unique characteristics and is rooted in its terroir.
They harvest manually, use spontaneous fermentation and do not fine or filter their wine.
Collepazzo is a blend of Cesanese grapes from the two distinct soil types in the Riccardi-Reale vineyards: volcanic and sandstone.
Balanced and harmonious, an authentic interpretation of the terrain, with fruits and structure both well defined and integrated. Mature red fruits, wet soil and hints of spices, with vivid tannins and noticeable persistency. Aged in chestnut barrels .
