Antonio Pulcini’s estate was known for its wines at the time of the Roman Empire. He has quietly championed the ancient Malvasia Puntinata (aka Malvasia del Lazio) and Grechetto – varieties almost lost to the onslaught of Trebbiano and Malvasia di Candia. Pulcini prunes his vines to produce tiny crops – typically around 20hl/ha – to develop the concentrated fruit he believes is necessary for truly ageworthy wines. His top white, from the Colle Gaio vineyard, is allowed to slumber in the villa’s underground caves until Antonio deems it ready for his loyal customers.
