Selezione Caffarelli

This wine comes from a vineyard planted in 2002 on the Tenuta Francescana Estate, above underground caves used for centuries in the removal of volcanic stone. During the Battle of Anzio, in the Second World War, due to their strategic location in the heart of the frontline, the caves were used as a shelter for civilians and soldiers.
The presence of these hollows increases the quality of ripening of the grapes, due to the insignificant depth of the soil.
