Castiglione in Teverina, Lazio
On their small family estate in a valley bordered by the Tiber River that runs on into the centre of Rome and the Vulsinii Volcanic Mountains, near the little town of Orvieto, Roberto & Paolo Trappolini are the third generation of their family to produce stunning wines. They grow some of Italy’s greatest treasures – grape varieties such as Procanico, Grechetto, Malvasia and Montepulciano among others. Their white wines are bursting with freshness, full of the aromas of flowers and with a minerality that is rare in wine today. All completely dry, the Trappolini white wines are a joy to drink. The Procanico is from the estate’s volcanic soils is among the best white wines I have had the pleasure to taste in Italy.
