Born almost by chance during a dinner with Louis Fabrice Latour who suggested to Sergio Mottura to use some of his barriques for aging in wood. The Latour a Civitella represents a historic wine that rediscovers an ancient native grape like the Grechetto and that in 2001 becomes the first white Lazio wine to receive the 3 Glasses in the Guide to Italian Wines of Slow Food and Gambero Rosso. The color is intense golden yellow with hints of melted butter and white fruit. A fresh and soft wine to combine with spicy dishes, white meats and gazpacho.
