Cerveteri Rosso Denominazione di Origine Controllata
For the Etruscans Pacha was the name of worship of the deity known as Fufluns, identifiable with the Greek god Dionysus and the Roman god Bacchus. This deity personified the luxuriant power of nature, so in relation to the force of the sun during the year, pronounced the renewal of life, and due to his deep bond with wine and with drunkenness he had to supervise the banquets that were so loved by the Etruscans and enlivened by dancing, singing and games. This wine, produced with a careful selection of grapes, it is a sincere expression of the area, volcanic and Mediterranean, through the interpretation that the winery has made of the DOC Cerveteri Rosso. An elegant wine that is young, fruity and pleasant.
