MARIO MACCIOCCA – Latium – Italy

Highly regarded wine maker from Latium region, Mario Macciocca works strictly with natural methods a 4-hectare ground, of which three are dedicated to the Cesanese and the other one to the Passerina. The vines are collocated under the mounts Scalambra, Pila Rocca and Carmine, along the mountain chain of the Simbruini, on hills that find themselves s in a particularly favorable spot for the growth of the Cesanese, shielded from the coldest winds and with a solar exposure to the southwest, also benefiting from a temperate c l i m a t e. Some of the wines dates back to 1945. They develop on a ground geologically traceable to the Cretaceus and formed majorly from molasses limestone and sandstone with a minor percentage of clay. These characteristics differentiate them from the adjacent hills, whose soils derive from limestones of the Miocene with some volcanic components. Four hectares expressed in seven labels, and on every serious red wine in bulk.
