Nestled among Umbria’s rolling hills on the southern bank of Lake Corbara, the Salviano property is owned by Marchesa Nerina Corsini Incisa della Rocchetta, whose family crafts the legendary Sassicaia, and is run by her sons, Piero and Giovanni.
Salviano and the Titignano Estate
The Salviano estate occupies 4,940 acres surrounding Lake Corbara and the banks of the Tiber River in the heart of the Orvieto DOC production zone. Salviano is part of the Titignano estate, a much larger property under the same ownership, located across the lake in the medieval village of the same name. Built in A.D. 937, the Titignano castle and its court grew by the 17th century to include the village and the surrounding land, including the Salviano castle and its property. The Titignano castle has recently benefited from extensive renovations, with its main buildings refurbished by the Marchesa to include guest accommodations and a restaurant.
Winegrowing at Salviano
The Salviano vineyards are planted to Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Trebbiano Toscano (Procanico clone) and Grechetto, and extend over 173 acres. These newly planted vineyards of indigenous and international varieties produce excellent-quality red and white wines, from the classic Orvieto Classico Superiore to progressive luxury red blends.
Salviano’s state-of-the-art vinification and cellaring facilities are located in the Salviano castle on Lake Corbara. Stainless steel vats are used for the fermentation of both white and red wines and barrel aging takes place in a cellar excavated from the tufa limestone beneath the property.
