Producer Profile

Sete Vini Naturali is a social, cultural, and agricultural project located in Priverno, a tiny village in the Province of Latina, Lazio, Central Italy, near the Circeo natural park. It was founded in 2013 by two young friends, Emiliano and Arcangelo, with the aim of rescuing old and abandoned vineyards in the Amaseno River Valley.

Sete's wines are made from a variety of indigenous and forgotten grape varieties, such as Ottonese, Cesanese, Moscato Bianco, Nero Buono, Bonamico, and Malvasia Puntinata. The grapes are grown organically and vinified using natural methods, with no added sulfites or other chemicals. The wines are unfined and unfiltered, and they express the unique character of their terroir.

Sete's wines are known for their vibrant flavors, acidity, and drinkability. They are perfect for everyday enjoyment, as well as for pairing with food.

In addition to producing wine, Sete also organizes educational events and workshops to promote natural wine and sustainable agriculture. They are committed to building a more sustainable and equitable food system, and their wines are a reflection of their values.

Wine Region

Lazio's geography is diverse, with coastal plains, rolling hills, and mountainous areas. The region is predominantly influenced by the Tyrrhenian Sea, which moderates the climate, ensuring warm summers and mild winters. This maritime influence, combined with the volcanic soils from ancient eruptions, creates a unique terroir that is both challenging and rewarding for viticulture.

Volcanic Soils: The soils of Lazio, particularly in areas around Lake Bolsena and the Alban Hills, are rich in volcanic ash, basalt, and tuff. These soils are well-draining and rich in minerals, imparting a distinct minerality to the wines.
Climate: Lazio enjoys a Mediterranean climate. The sea's proximity ensures that extreme temperatures are rare, making it ideal for grape cultivation. The region receives adequate rainfall, especially in the winter months, ensuring that the vines are well-nourished throughout the growing season.

Lazio is home to several indigenous grape varieties that have adapted to its unique terroir over centuries.

White Grapes:

Trebbiano: This is one of the most widely planted white grape varieties in Lazio. It produces fresh, light-bodied wines with crisp acidity.
Malvasia: Often blended with Trebbiano, Malvasia produces aromatic wines with floral and fruity notes.
Red Grapes:

Cesanese: Native to Lazio, Cesanese produces deeply colored wines with flavors of dark fruits, spices, and herbs.
Montepulciano: While more famous in Abruzzo, Montepulciano is also grown in Lazio, producing robust red wines with good tannic structure.

Typical Wines of Lazio

Frascati: Produced in the Alban Hills, Frascati is Lazio's flagship white wine. Made primarily from Malvasia and Trebbiano, it's known for its fresh, fruity character with hints of almonds and herbs.
Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone: This curiously named wine is a blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia, and Roscetto. It's a crisp, aromatic white wine with a fascinating history.
Cesanese del Piglio: A red wine made entirely from Cesanese, it boasts flavors of cherries, plums, and spices, often with a hint of earthiness.

Food and Wine Pairings in Lazio

Lazio's culinary tradition is as rich as its viticultural one. The region's wines are crafted to complement its food, creating a harmonious dining experience.

Frascati and Saltimbocca: The crisp acidity of Frascati cuts through the richness of Saltimbocca, a dish made of veal, prosciutto, and sage.
Cesanese del Piglio and Pasta all'Amatriciana: The spicy and fruity notes of Cesanese pair beautifully with the tangy tomato sauce and the savory pancetta in this classic pasta dish.
Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone and Fried Artichokes: The wine's acidity and aromatic profile complement the crispy, earthy flavors of the artichokes.
