di Catone was established in 1974 and is entirely managed by Antonio
Pulcini. The vineyards are located in “Castelli
Romani”, in the Frascati production area, just south of Rome.
Antonio Pulcini is committed to growing his grapes without the use of
artificial fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides.
Our label, Villa Arianna, was designed by the then 9 year old granddaughter of the owner Antonio Pulcini, who was promised a piece of candy for each bottle sold to us. Worried about Arianna’s teeth, they are now in the process of working something else out…
TASTING NOTES: This crisp light wine is made to be drunk young—flavorful and soft, it is a delightful wine to sip outside on a hot summer afternoon. Or why not in front of the fire, or with a creamy fish dish as the days are cooler!
