Lazio

(Italy)

Lazio, has a mild and constant climate, mainly volcanic soils whose hills were famous already at the time of the Romans.
Production in 2009 was about 1.527.000 hl, concentrated for about 1/3 in the area of ​​the Castelli Romani, especially from white grapes, which cover more than 75% of the vineyard, in particular malvasia (30%) and trebbiani (30%), in addition to the autochthonous bellone (5%). The origin of the populous family of trebbiani is lost in the mists of time; formerly Pliny wrote of grapes and trebulanum wine, in Tuscany and in Lazio. The equally large family of Malvasias has Greek origins; its name derives from Monemvasia, a city from which the Venetians imported the vine, first on the island of Crete, then Candia, their estate from 1202, then in Italy.
Even in a lower percentage, black-berry vines are cultivated as cherry, Montepulciano, merlot, cabernet, syrah, barbera and cesanese and Affile from which the only DOCG of the Cesanese del Piglio DOCG region is made.
Also here are the international red berry vines to give some of the best results.
Finally you can remember some particular productions, the Aleatico of Gradoli, good passito red and the white Est! East!! East!!! Di Montefiascone and Frascati.

Soil and climate
The coastal part is benefited from the sea that mitigates the winters and refreshes the summers. In the inner part of the Region winter is hard and summer is hot. In the coastal coast and in the plains the rains are scarce, while in the mountains they are very abundant, especially in winter and spring. It is predominantly hilly 54%, for the rest 26% mountainous and 20% flat, it is a fertile region with microclimatic conditions favorable to the vine breeding.
History
Even before the birth of Rome, this territory was called Lazio, from the Latin Latium, inhabited by the people of the Latins and was located in the area of ​​the lower Tiber. After the period of the Republican era the borders widened and with the order of Augustus in the Roman era, the Region included both Lazio and Campania.
Typical products
Lazio, the region that hosts the capital, is one of the most productive wine districts in Italy. Here we find fresh and light whites like East! East! East!!! And Frascati, mainly made with Malvasia and Trebbiano vines. In the reclaimed marshes of the province of Latina they are doing some very interesting experiments, and Casale del Giglio has succeeded in the undertaking of making high quality wines, reds, whites and rosés. A notable red, Montiano, is produced by Falesco di Riccardo Caterella.
Typical dishes
Among the first courses we mention the most characteristic, such as gnocchi alla Romana, considered mandatory on Thursday, based on flour and boiled potatoes with meat sauce or tomato sauce and basil. And then all the spaghetti: cheese and pepper, garlic and oil, bucatini all'amatriciana, whose endless versions see a sautéed onion or garlic, or both, or just oil, creating real currents interpretation, pork cheek , hot pepper and pecorino cheese from local pastures, carbonara macaroni with oil, bacon, pecorino cheese and beaten egg, of clear Maremma. In the field of the second triumph the lamb cacciatore, artichokes or brodetto. Pecorino romano is one of the best cheeses, followed by pecorino ciociaro, smoked pecorino cheese, provolone, marzolina, goat's cheese, buffalo mozzarella from the Agro Pontino. The desserts are not very numerous, but you can remember the tart with ricotta made with shortcrust pastry, ricotta and custard, the one with sour cherries of Jewish-Roman origin and the puffs of San Giuseppe.
