Nero Buono

The Nero Buono grape was planted on the Tenuta della Francescana Estate in 2012. This traditional Lazio vine, originally from the Cori area, has recently been revitalized by courageous producers after being counted among the local cultivars that had disappeared.

In our unique conditions, Nero Buono expresses superior characteristics of this particular volcanic terroir, with extraordinary organoleptic qualities of the variety with a strong personality.
