Alberto Giacobbe's estate was founded in the late 1940's by Alberto's grandfather, Leopoldo, who began to cultivate a small plot of Cesanese on Colle San Giovenale, about 40 km southeast of Rome in Paliano. In 2008, Alberto took over the now 9 hectare estate from his father, who previously sold most of the crop to the Cantina Sociale of Olevano Romano, keeping a little back to make wine which they sold in bulk on the local market. Alberto immediately converted the vineyards to organic farming, drastically reduced yields and implemented a natural approach and philosophy in the vineyards and cellar. 

Alberto's Duchessa is made from 100% Passerina del Frusinate planted in 1980, grown in clay and limestone soils. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and aged in tank for 7 months before bottling. Mid-lemon color with gold highlights and aromas of orange blossom, tangerine and crushed rocks. The palate is tightly wound with a saline tinge to the orange-citrus fruit and floral notes that fan out on the expansive finish. Refreshing, unique and delicious, enjoy this Lazio white with a plate of spaghetti a la carbonara.
