Description

It is the identity of our territory, historically defined as Ager Caecubum. Cecubo Wine was considered among the best wines in ancient Rome, produced in the area between Itri, Fondi, and Sperlonga. From Serpe and Abbuoto grapes. Selection of the best bunches, from both the vineyards of Itri and Fondi. The wine is aged for 9 months in tonneaux, then in the bottle for 1 year. Unfiltered wine.

Intense ruby red color. On the nose, the aromas of red fruit, such as cherry and plum blend, with strong notes of spices and pepper. In the mouth it’s powerful and elegant, with enveloping and balanced tannins.

Pair with elaborate meat dishes, such as roast duck. Excellent with bushmeat. Classic pairing with a traditional aged cheese.

The Producer

Azienda Agricola Monti Cecubi is located in Itri (Province of Latina, Latium), between woods and forests of cork, on the hills watching Sperlonga Sea. This is the land of the old Vino Cecubo, the Ancient Roman wine. We have retrieved and selected the indigenous grape varieties to bring back Cecubo wine and, thanks to the use of organic farming methods, we have reintroduced viticulture in our region… so fertile and rich of natural beauty.

The soil composition, the exposition, the sea influence and the temperature range are the precious elements that, together with our deep passion, give Monti Cecubi vineyards the power to produce intense, fresh, long-life and unique wines… just like the tradition of the old Cecubo wine.
