Tenuta di Salviano was purchased by the Principe Corsini family in the late 17th century. The property has Etruscan 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.

Harvest Note
The 2021 growing season consisted of 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 good in quality. Manual harvest occurred in the early hours of the day to preserve the integrity of the grapes.
Tasting Note
Bright and refreshing with aromas of white flowers and flavors of tropical fruit. There is also a strong, but pleasant mineral component that is very evident on the palate providing complexity and mouth feel.
Food Pairing
A soft, easy drinking white that pairs well with pizza and pasta dishes. Also with meats like a grilled steak and pork.
