Made from 100% Canaiolo Bianco grapes grown in the historic Sterparo vineyard, this wine takes its name from the type of old rose that was traditionally grown around the vines on this property. The vineyard was planted in 1950 at 80 metres above sea level below Roccasecca dei Volsci. It’s located 4 kilometres from Prossedi and faces south-east, alongside the Amaseno river. The first vintage was in 2017.
