Lazio is the region surrounding Rome, and Bellone is an ancient Roman varietal that comes in both white and red types.  The Cincinnato COOP specializes in the organic farming and vinification of ancient Roman varietals. The cuvée name of "Castore" is named after the mythical Dioscuri to whom the temple of Castor and Pollux is dedicated. Grown in the hills at approximately 200 - 250 meters in soils of volcanic-clay, the wine is aged on its lees for 2 months and aged in stainless steel for 6 months. Peach, lime zest and baked apple flavors, with fairly full body can pair with fairly intense dishes.
