    Winemaker Notes

    Alberico White is a wine of bright yellow color with greenish tones. To the nose, very intense notes emerge which are persistent, complex and toasty, reminding citrus and exotic fruits, buttery sensations and vanilla. To the palate it is soft, harmonious, sapid, fresh, persistent and elegant. The Sémillon finds in the volcanic soil a very special personality that allows it to best express all its characteristics. The prolonged aging in cask enhances its roundness and makes the Alberico White a unique wine in its area.

    Alberico, Italy
    Alberico The Alberico Estate Winery Image
    At the suggestion of Tancredi Biondi Santi, possibly Italy’s most renown enologist in those days, the Prince of Venosa planted Bordeaux varieties on his estate at the gates of Rome in Lazio in the late 1940s. He steadfastly farmed his lands organically from the beginning, even in the times when the big conglomerates were promising us “better living through chemistry.” His wines, though nearly impossible to buy because of the prince’s irascible character, became a cult sensation in Italy, and eventually arrived on our shores as well. The white, the only Semillon “in purezza” produced in Italy to this day, and the red, from Cabernet and Merlot, elicited the swooning praise normally reserved for religious experience! The prince continued his work until 1995, when in ill health, he retired to a hotel in Rome. Perhaps out of jealousy, perhaps for no reason at all, the prince ripped up almost all of his old vines before retiring. When he passed in 2005, his estate was divided among the prince’s heirs. The prince’s daughter had married Piero Antinori, and Piero’s daughters Alessia, Albiera and Allegra took on the inherited property as their personal project. They found four rows each of old vine Merlot and Cabernet, as well as three rows of Semillon grapes planted by the prince that had survived. They make a minuscule 500 bottles of red wine, and about 1000 bottles of the Semillon. Both wines are called Alberico to honor their grandfather and the traditions he passed down to them. Two entry level wines came on line in 2016 made with massal selections from the old plantings of the prince: known as Appia Antica 400, the address of their grandfather’s villa and their mother’s birthplace, they are great value-priced windows into this unique terroir, jealously fostered for so many years by the Prince of Venosa!

    Known as the ancient homeland of the Latins, today there is a vigorus wine industry beyond the city limits of modern, bustling Rome. The Cesanese grape, full of red berry, spice and rose, is responsible for Lazio’s only true local reds. Lazio’s most famous white wine, called Frascati, is based on the local Malvasia del Lazio and Trebbiano Toscana. A sweet version, called Cannellino di Frascati, is also made.

    Sémillon has the power to create wines with considerable structure, depth and length that will improve for several decades. It is the perfect partner to the vivdly aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. Sémillon especially shines in the Bordeaux region of Sauternes, which produces some of the world’s greatest sweet wines. Somm Secret—Sémillon was so common in South Africa in the 1820s, covering 93% of the country’s vineyard area, it was simply referred to as Wyndruif, or “wine grape.”
