LAZIO

Among Italy’s 20 wine-producing regions, Lazio ranks 8th for output. 45% of wines from Lazio have DOC recognition, and 80% of total wine production is white. Rome is considered the world’s leading wine city; that is, the most wine production of any metropolitan area. Noted DOCGs from the region immediately surrounding Rome include Frascati Superiore, and Cannellino di Frascati. Frascati, so named for the town just outside of Rome, is a dry white wine that is considered one of the oldest in Italy.
