Lorenzo: cheerful, playful and nimble
versatile and lively – like Villa Caviciana
IGT Lazio Bianco
An unusual spumante or sparkling wine, which is pressed from the Aleatico grape, which is not otherwise used for sparkling wines. Lorenzo has an exceptionally fruity flavour with a dense mineral structure and a fine herbal spiciness.
Vineyard in the township of Gradoli, at an altitude of 500 to 550 metres
Approx. four weeks of steel tank fermentation at a controlled temperature (16–20C)
Lengthy maturation of the young wine on the fine yeast, second tank fermentation based on the Charmat method
Vinous, inviting, slight herbal notes and playful fruitiness, aftertaste of mineral structure and refined spiciness, which comes together smoothly in a dry and sparkling finale
Light appetisers or ideal as an aperitif
Very good (three stars) in the International Summer Wines 2015 tasting competition of the gourmet magazine Selection, Silver (85 PAR points) at the International Organic Wine Award 2017
Lorenzo was named after San Lorenzo, an abandoned village directly on the lake, to which the early romantic poet Ludwig Tieck dedicated the poem San Lorenzo and Bolsena.
