With Rome as the cultural, political and historical epicenter, Lazio has been a picturesque agricultural area centered around a metropolis for millennia. A land of shepherds and farmers, the Lazio countryside is rich in produce and livestock, but it wasn't until 2008 that the denomination had its first DOCG wine.

The Pivot is a blend of the typical Roman/Lazio grape, the Cesanese 60% supplemented with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. The vineyard of the L'Olivella is of volcanic origin, rich in potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. The vineyard is located on a hilly terrain, well exposed and ventilated.

After manual picking, the grapes are destemmed. The fermentation lasts about 15 days at a controlled temperature of 30/32° C. The wine is decanted twice, again coming into contact with the lees for a few days. After decanting, the wine is aged for 8-10 months in barrique (medium toast Allier and Tronçais oak) and an additional 6-8 months in bottle.

The Pivot has a dark ruby red color. In the nose, the wine is concentrated, ethereal, with light vanilla perfumes, intense and elegant, where the spices and the red and dark fruit enhance each other beautifully. It is clearly a Cesanese driven wine but the Merlot gives the wine some creaminess and the Cabernet some warm cherry and this makes this wine a Super-Lazio. The wine is full bodied, velvety soft with a nice long finish.
