Tenuta di Salviano was purchased by the Principe Corsini family in the late 17th century. The property has Ethruscan and Roman descent, in fact the main house on Salviano was a Roman villa and somewhere on the estate is a necropolis. Donna Nerina Corsini married Il Marchese Enrico Incisa della Rocchetta, and their two children Giovanni and Eleonora are now the owners of Tenuta di Salviano. Il Marchese Giovanni Incisa della Rocchetta manages the estate and oversees the winemaking with his wife, La Marchesa Tara.

The estate is just over 2,000 hectares. The vines are planted in the best plots of vineyards across the vast land. The terrain is mountainous with the Tevere running through and a man made reservior called Lake Corbara. The soil is limestone, sedimentary rock, sand and tufo. The vineyards range from 100 meters to 530 meters in altitude, and many are planted on South West facing slopes. Harvesting is done in entirety by hand with careful bunch selection taking place.

Harvest Note
2021 registered a cold and rainy winter but also an unusual warm temperature in early spring interrupted by a few days of freezy climate. This caused a lower grape production but grapes high in quality. Manual harvest was conducted in the early hours of the day to preserve the integrity of the grapes. Upon arrival in the cantina and prior to being pressed, the grapes undergo a second selection and are kept for a few hours in the cool room to fix the aromatic profile.
Tasting Note
Light pink with reflections of ruby, this wine is full of aromas of zesty citrus fruit, some earthy notes and charming hints of red fruits like strawberry and cherry. On the palate is bright and refreshing, with flavors that mirror the nose.
Food Pairing
Best drank as an aperitif or with light fare. Charcuterie, salads, fish and even pizza and lighter pasta dishes.
