We are in the Castel Franco area, in the heart of Lazio, one of the many corners of Italy with a truly excellent habitat for the cultivation of vines and olive trees. Here Cantina Le Macchie, owned by the Di Carlo family, can today count on vineyards that extend over the hills between the Rieti basin and Mount Terminillo. The altitude is between 610 and 1075 metres above sea level, with good exposures towards the south occupied by the later-ripening vines, and others towards the south-west where the more precocious varieties are found. The soil, rich in minerals, favours the growth and development of high quality grapes. It produces wines characterised by a fine freshness and flavour. In view of the altitude of the vineyards, their slope and the difficulty of working them, the winery is a member of Cervim, the certification body for Eroica viticulture.
