Lazio - Latium

The Lazio region is known worldwide because of Rome, the Italian capital, but not for its wine. The region mostly produces simple and light whites, which are sold to the hordes of tourists that flow continuously into the Eternal City. The region counts 27 DOCs and the 3 DOCGs, among them the DOC Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone. The majority of Lazio’s white wines are made from various Trebbiano and Malvasia grape varieties. The 9 Colli Romani DOCs, located on the Alban hills south of Rome, alone account for over 80 percent of the total production of DOC wines in the region. The wines of Lazio are suitable for everyday consumption. Unpretentious, they perfectly accompany classic Roman cuisine such as spaghetti alla carbonara or fritti misti (a mixture of fried vegetables, seafood and meats). While most restaurants and osterie in the capital serve local wine, Rome is also full of wine bars and shops that offer bottles from the best wineries in the region.
