Located in Arce in the basso(low) Lazio, Palazzo Tronconi is a story of attachment to people and place. One time engineer Marco Marrocco, owner of the estate and whose father came from here, spent a lot of his childhood with grandparents in this very special place.
Marco acquired the land in 2010 and with just 2.5ha started replanting in spring 2011. Right from the start, Marco’s aims were two-fold – to support the re-emergence of native varieties and to do this working in the most natural way possible.
Colour: Dark ruby.
Perfume: Intense perfume of cherries, dried plums, surrounded by spicy notes of black pepper, chocolate and vanilla.
Taste: Full-bodied, harmonious and balanced, Persistent.
Work to gain certification started immediately and Palazzo Tronconi was Demeter certified in 2015.
Palazzo Tronconi is the only winery to focus on the rediscovery of these forgotten varieties namely Capolongo, Lecinaro, Maturano and Pampanaro and Raspato Nero(previously known as Ulivello).
Now at just over 14 hectares, Palazzo Tronconi is an important estate working to share these wines from the indigenous varieties with consumers around the world.
Palazzo Tronconi is a member of winemakers' associations Renaissance des Appellations, Vi.Te and VinNatur. With no intervention in the vineyard, the best fruit is brought to the winery where the wines are vinified and aged in cement.
Natural yeasts, no fining and low sulphites at bottling to produce wines that are of place, that are clean and elegant.
