This is the story of a precious wine.

It is born in vineyards on the green slopes of Umbria, bent to the coils of the wind and caressed by the waters of Lake Corbara.

A unique and intoxicating nectar, born from the passion of Luigi and Giovanna Barberani.

It is since 1961, in fact, that the Barberani family has been renewing the ancient ritual of the grape harvest with skilled hands, transforming the grapes into a symphony of aromas and flavors in total respect for the territory and tradition.

A passion rooted in the past and through love and devotion passed down from generation to generation, it traces the future of Umbrian agriculture on a timeless journey.

Aleatico is a traditional grape variety from the hills of Lake Corbara, of ancient Etruscan origin. The vermilion-red berries, with dense, fragrant flesh, wither slowly on the vine during the breezy lake September. With refinement it acquires extraordinary complexity and a suave, intense aroma.
