When in Rome, go to Lazio. When at home, we’ll bring Lazio to you.
On the slopes of the Lepini Mountains, in Cori, an ancient town dating back to the 4th century, you will find the winery of Marco Carpineti. Marco Carpineti is situated in an ancient territory south of Rome in a town called Cori at nearly 400 meters above sea level. The Carpineti family has been in business for generations, and since 1994 they have chosen the path of organic agriculture – no herbicides, chemical fertilizers or synthetic products. Biodynamic agriculture is based on the idea of the balance of nature, a type of agriculture in unison with the landscape, the earth and humanity. The challenge focuses on almost unknown grapevines that only this unique terroir could have preserved like a precious hidden treasure. White grape varieties cultivated are Bellone, Archpriest White and two varieties of Greek grapes, called Moro and Yellow, almost disappeared in the territory. Red grape varieties cultivated are Nero Buono di Cori, Montepulciano and Cesanese.
From the vineyard and its laborers to your glass, it is a constant challenge and a continuous act of love which are renewed every day in the steady pursuit of harmony.
