“We found ourselves managing land almost by accident six years ago. Then we talked with the people and local producers, and we decided to plant vineyards and produce wine, for Lazio it can give and say much more than what has happened to date. And so Tenimenti Leone was born, in Lanuvio ”. Words, to WineNews, by Federico Veronesi, at the helm of Signorvino and son of Sandro Veronesi, patron of the Calzedonia group. One of the great families of the Italian company, linked to wine with the Signorvino wine chain, and now also as a wine producer. “It is a project born over time, and which until now we have always kept a little reserved, also to calmly understand the territory that hosts us, to compare ourselves with those who have lived it before. We have planted 30 hectares of vines, both with native and international varieties, the potential at full capacity is 300,000 bottles, and only now, after some vinification, the first bottles arrive on the market “.
Whites and reds under the IGP Lazio, and wines like Roma Capoccia, white and red, under the Doc Roma, “which is relatively young because it was born a few years ago, compared to other historical denominations, but has great potential for its link to the “Eternal City”, and is very recognizable in the world. We believe in it – explains Veronesi – as we believe in teaming up in the territory. There are many examples of success, I think of how Ferrari has also driven the success of many small Trentodoc producers. Obviously I’m not comparing our company to a reality like Ferrari, but the message is that if some start investing in a certain direction in a territory, and then others follow and team up, with patience, results arrive. And we want to be personally involved in the promotion of Lazio wines ”.
