Sete – It’s Italian for thirst.

An hour south of Rome, within the last dregs of the capital’s sprawl, lies the town of Priverno. In 2013 three locals Emiliano Giorgi, Arcangelo Galuppi and Martina D’alessio set about saving the commune’s vineyards, abandoned in times of economic downturn. With minimal equipment but a strong ethos the trio have championed native grapes, uncompromisingly producing wine that tells the story of the Amaseno river valley. The vineyards are exemplars of biodiversity – mature fig and olive trees serve as row posts for the vines and wildflowers colour in between. Everything is done by hand with no additives in the vineyard or the winery.

2019 Tropicale – 90% Ottonese, 5% Trebbiano, 5% Moscato.
24 hours of skin contact, pressed with a hydraulic press. Aged in fibreglass tank for seven months. The 2019 vintage is an orange version, immediately drinkable with a pinch of residual sugar, sapid, acid and fresh.
