This is the story of a precious wine.
Born in the vineyards of the green hills of Umbria, wind-swept and caressed by the waters of Lake Corbara.
A unique nectar, created by the passion of Luigi and Giovanna Barberani.
Since 1961 the Barberani family has followed the ancient rite of the harvest, with skilled hands, turning the grapes into a symphony of aromas and flavours, in total respect for the land and the tradition.
It is a passion that has its roots in the past and through love and devotion has been passed down from generation to generation. It is the future of the Umbrian agriculture, a timeless journey.
From the smallest pebble of the river Tiber to the water that gathers in the lake named Corbara.
All the natural elements are present in this exciting landscape, soft and sensual, moulded by steep hills, telling the poetry of places and making the terroir of the Barberani’s vineyards unique.
The soils of marine origin, clay and limestone, are composed of marl rich in fossils and shells dating from the Eocene period.
It is this the nature that makes them highly suited to quality grape growing.
And it is our work that makes the wine express its unique personality through aromas and sensations that touches your soul, revealing the secrets of the place where it was born.
The rich ecosystem that surrounds the lake, lifeblood of woods and forests, enhances flavour in grapes, the acidity, the light iodine scents and character typical of the Mediterranean. A wine rich in nuances and fascinating contrasts, but determined and strong, like the passion of our family.
