The Pallavicini family has been present in the Lazio region from the second half of the 17th century with cardinals Lazzaro and Stefano Pallavicini. Since then members of the family have had absolute importance, including several Cardinals, a Pope, Clement IX and one of the first mayors of Rome when it became the capital of Italy, Francesco Pallavicini.
For centuries the Pallavicini Princes have owned various properties around Rome, Colonna, Gallicano and Cerveteri.
The estates in Colonna, Marmorelle and Cerveteri have a total combined surface of 80 hectares under vines.
In the historical archives of Palazzo Pallavicini, documents have been found that testify to the supply of wine to the Vatican and
Starting from the principle that in order to grow and improve it is always necessary to be open to change, in 2016 a new production project began, carried out by Don Sigieri Diaz Pallavicini son of Princess Maria Camilla.
A new cellar with conical stainless steel vats was inaugurated. This is a suitable solution for the separate vinification of each single vineyard,
which enhances the characteristics and peculiarity of each plot of the estate. The objective of the project is to increase the quality of all
the wines with particular attention to the native varieties such as Malvasia Puntinata and Cesanese.
The vineyards have an age ranging from 7 to over 40 years. The training system is guyot and spurred cordon. The density of the vines
varies from about 4,000 to 5,000 plants per hectare.
