L'Olivella

A young and dynamic agricultural company, believing in innovation while maintaining strong ties with local culture and traditions, was founded in 1986. It is the result of the encounter between an experienced winemaker from Puglia, Umberto Notarnicola, and an expert in Piedmontese wines, Bruno Violo, both in love with the landscape of Lazio.

L'Olivella

We are between Monteporzio and Frascati, on the hills around Rome. The hills where the vines of L'Olivella grow are of volcanic origin, rich in mineral salts (potassium, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium) and poor in nitrogen. An ideal combination for vine cultivation and the production of wines of high organoleptic quality.

Lazio

The history of viticulture in Lazio is closely linked to its past and dates back to Roman times when the region was already known for the production of prestigious wines such as Falerno and Caecubum. In recent years, viticulture in Lazio has focused on quality and is characterized by the use of sustainable agricultural techniques, which preserve soil biodiversity and improve grape characteristics.
Wine production in Lazio is an important economic resource for the region, contributing to wine tourism and the enhancement of the region's cultural and landscape heritage.

Viticulture in Lazio extends over a vast territory, including the hills south of Rome, the areas of the Colli Albani and Castelli Romani, and the more inland areas of the region, such as the province of Frosinone.
The climate, characterized by mild and humid winters and hot, dry summers, is an important factor in wine production, influencing grape ripening and their resistance to fungal diseases. The geological composition of Lazio's soil is highly varied, characterized by great heterogeneity. Along the coast, there is predominantly alluvial soil, while inland, volcanic, limestone, and clayey soils can be found. This diversity of soils favors the cultivation of numerous grape varieties, each of which thrives best in certain types of terrain.

Colli Albani

The Colli Albani are a mountainous area of Lazio, mainly extending south of Rome. They are characterized by a unique volcanic terroir.

The Colli Albani boast a millenary history in viticulture and are renowned for their fresh, mineral, and aromatic wines, reflecting the influences of volcanic soil and the Mediterranean climate.

The typical grape varieties of the region include Malvasia bianca di Candia, Malvasia del Lazio, Bellone, Bombino bianco, Greco bianco, and Trebbiano toscano and giallo for white grapes, while the principal grape variety for black grapes is Cesanese.

In the territory of Frascati, in particular, winemaking culture is ancient.

The soils are characterized by volcanic origin, which gives the wines salinity and minerality, as well as excellent quality.

The Colli Albani, the viticultural heart of southern Lazio, tell a millenary story through their fresh and aromatic wines, enhanced by the volcanic terroir that gives them distinctive salinity and minerality.
