Tenuta di Salviano was purchased by the Principe Corsini family in the late 17th century. The propety 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 Orvieto Classico Superiore zone, the heartland of Umbria’s distinct whites, is characterized by higher elevations and cooler temperatures. The vineyards are overlooking Lago di Corbara on the south bank. Soils here are a composite of clay and limestone. Given soils and climatic conditions, whites here are defined by higher aromatics, structure derived from total acids, and freshness.
