The Principe Pallavicini winery was established by one of Italyís oldest noble families. With over 300 years of viticultural experience, the family focuses on the development of the winemaking business in order to produce wines of impeccable quality in the magical, inimitable Lazio terroir.
Principe Pallavicini represents the largest, private estate in Frascati. Of the 208 acres of vineyards at their Colonna (Pasolina and Marmorelle) and Cerveteri holdings, 133 acres are dedicated to the cultivation of white varietals for the production of Frascati DOCG. In-depth knowledge of the land has led to identifying the best vineyards, and after careful study and experimentation conducted in the field and in the cellar, these vineyards are producing increasingly more refined and enjoyable wines with their own outstanding personality.
The team of agronomist Mauro de Angelis, winemaker Carlo Ferrini and resident winemaker Carlo Roveda controls every aspect of production, from cultivation to bottling. Great efforts are taken to maintain the rich character of each varietal. Careful selection, chilled transportation and tailored vinification techniques ensure that the final wines have the bright, nuanced personality of the varietals that went into them.
To this end, renovations were initiated in the familyís historic Colonna cellars and Marmorelle vineyards in the 1980s. The refining of the wine takes place on the Marmorelle farm, where an old stable has been restored and equipped for drying grapes used to make raisin wine, while a section of an ancient aqueduct holds the barrel, cask and bottle chambers. The cellar has been designed to focus the utmost attention on this conclusive phase of the winemaking, utilizing a combination of traditional and modern techniques.
