In our quest to discover more of the “real wine” of Lazio, we proudly introduce you to the wines of Colleformica and the father and son winemaking duo of Sergio and Paulo Bombetti. Located roughly 40km south-east of Rome, and just over the other side of the Castelli Romani from Frascati, the family have owned and cultivated just 3 hectares of land for more than 100 years. Just 2 hectares are taken up with vineyards, with the remainder being a combination of olive groves, fruit trees, and a vegetable garden to provide for family consumption. The vines here are upwards of forty years old, and consist of traditional varieties to the area - Sangiovese, Malvasia, and Trebbiano. They farm entirely naturally, and grapes are always hand-harvested. In the cellar, the process consists of manual pressing, native yeast fermentations without temperature control, 4 to 5 punchdowns a day, then aging only in fiberglass tanks (no oak). Rackings and bottling are done in accordance with the lunar calendar. We invite you to explore these very limited wines from this very special family, who provide another link in the chain of courageous producers we represent, holding the torch high for an underrated and incredible region. - SelectioNaturel
