Piana dei Castelli
Piana dei Castelli is a beautiful reality that is located in Velletri on the southern slope of the Roman Castles. "Flat Castle" because Matteo Ceracchi, the patron, believes his only castle is his terroir. Matteo has a degree in oenology taken in the prestigious San Michele all'Adige school, and decades of harvesting on his shoulders in a boundless passion for wine, which has always been a continuous endeavor, an all-round research that has never been fully satisfied. All its wines aim to go beyond the usual and the obvious. They are wines that seek taste solutions that cross the boundaries and The area around the Castelli Romani is made up of so many microclimatic areas with different exposures that offer the ideal conditions for producing wines with distinct individualities.The vineyards grow on volcanic soils rich in tuff, iron and limestone for the particular location next to the Lepini Mountains and the Apennines.The vineyards, kissed by the wind that comes from the Mediterranean Sea, are cultivated in biodynamic mode because Matteo's philosophy is that of understanding and respecting all elements and states of nature. Matteo breeds Trebbiano Giallo, Pinot Grigio, Montepulciano, Cesanese, Merlot, and Grechetto, Malvasia, Riesling and Sauvignon. The wines of Piana dei Castelli are authentic and refined.
