Lazio wines for sale online at Italian Wine Selection
Latium is a Region with an excellent extension of area used for the cultivation of vines. The mixed territory, between plains and mountainous areas, allows the development of different types of wine. Lazio boasts an excellent production of white wines, such as Frascati, but even among red wines it excels with Cesanese del Piglio. In the past, a characteristic feature of Lazio's wine production was the family nature of the management of vines that produced wines mainly for self-consumption; today, however, the trend has reversed and we are moving in the direction of large-scale wine production with industrial-level winemaking facilities. The Italian Wine Selection wine shop offers a selection of Lazio wines that can be purchased online, the smells and tastes of Lazio directly in every glass.
The territory of Latium, in its great variety of grape varieties, is renowned mainly for white wines but also presents level-headed black wines such as Cesanese, but it is also worth mentioning the cultivation of Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera. Latium white wines are largely created from grape varieties such as Malvasia Bianca Lunga, Malvasia Bianca di Candia, Malvasia del Lazio, and Trebbiano Giallo, Toscano, and del Lazio. Mention should also be made of Grechetto viterbese and the wines of the Castelli Romani, tastes and flavors among medieval villages enveloped in greenery and fantastic vineyards. There are several important wine-producing areas in the Latium region: ranging from Ciociaria, the territory of Cesanese del Piglio DOCG, Affile DOC, Olevano Romano and Genazzano DOC; passing through Latina, with its Aprilia DOC and Circeo DOC; in the Viterbo area and in Rieti we find Trebbiano Toscano and Giallo, Est di Montefiascone DOC, Aleatico di Gradoli DOC, Tarquinia DOC, Cerveteri DOC and Colli della Sabina DOC.

The culinary tradition of Latium is rich in first courses and tasty main courses, while it is somewhat lacking in appetizers. The best-known dishes are undoubtedly bucatini all'amatriciane and rigatoni alla carbonara, but in general for first courses there is great variety with penne all'arrabbiata, spaghetti alla gricia, rigatoni con pajata, risotto alla romana, and various types of characteristic fettuccine, such as those alla romana that feature a mix of tomatoes and mushrooms. An important part is also reserved for soups, such as escarole e fagioli or stracciatella romana. Such dishes go well with the structured red wines found in the Lazio region, as well as with the many flavorful main courses found in the area. From saltimbocca alla romana to lamb abbacchio and scottadito ribs, in general just the abbacchio presents different varieties cooked in ways and with flavors that are always different depending on the taste preferred. Finally, among pork dishes, porchetta d'Ariccia is a must. A separate chapter for the products of the confectionery industry, we recall among them pangiallo, pupazze di Frascati, grattachecca and maritozzi that go well with some of the sparkling white wines of the area.
