The wine produced at the time of the Etruscans was “bottled” in amphorae bearing the name of the producer and the type of wine, and sealed with cork and pitch. The vine varieties used were all belonging to the “vitis vinifera”, considered ancestors of Trebbiano and Malvasia. The wine produced in this way was proposed in the markets in the entire area of the Mediterranean. Tenuta Tre Cancelli is located near the Tyrrhenian coast at the foot of the Ceriti mountains on a spur of volcanic tufa. The mild climate of the winery is ideal for vine cultivation, the land, rich in potassium and phosphorus, and poor in organic matters, favours a quantitatively limited but high quality production.
The vineyards of the winery, that produce 100% of the vinified grapes and of the bottled wine, are planted to Trebbiano, Malvasia, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Vermentino, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Merlot and Cabernet. With fifty years of experience and the work of the first generation of the De Rinaldis family, in 2001 the winery Tenuta Tre Cancelli was established, and his son Liborio took over the management of the company. In 2010, Silvio joined the the business management, sharing with his partner Liborio the passion for the art of making wine. Tenuta Tre Cancelli has received many awards over time, including the Calix Aureus for Lituo 2002, 2004 and 2007, and a diploma of merit for the other labels, both obtained in the selection of the wines of Lazio 2004.
Tenuta Tre Cancelli is part of the “Strada delle Terre Etrusco Romane”
