The Solideo vineyards are located on the hills of Lake Corbara’s northern bank at 150 to 380 meters in elevation. The generally southern exposure varies by vineyard site. The soil is rich in red clay, tufa (a limestone common to central Italy) and small pebbles. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand, and the two varieties are separately fermented in temperature-controlled vats. The grapes are macerated, and the blend is composed only after maturation in French oak barriques.

about the grape +
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Nestled among Umbria’s rolling hills on the southern bank of Lake Corbara, the Salviano property is owned by Incisa della Rocchetta family, owners of legendary Sassicaia.
