Enology and quality

Sevaral years ago, a new beginning was key to perfecting our wine growing, with the aim of setting new benchmarks in terms of character and aroma. The natural conditions are exceptional. ÔMINA ROMANA is perfecting the process in line with the very highest quality standards.

Enology and quality

Our dream came true when we procured the vineyard and an olive grove and is now bearing fruit. We developed our methods and approach in line with the new challenges, beginning with thorough analysis of the soils and, in our own weather station, recording wind, temperature, and moisture values in order to determine the most appropriate types of grape to plant. After all, we wanted to cultivate our grapes and allow them to mature in harmony with nature. ÔMINA ROMANA would like to create something new and avoid mass production with high-yielding fruit and enormous grapes. Our fruit therefore develops in loose clusters and is considerably smaller than the average grape in Lazio. Instead, we planted the new vines more closely together than before, causing the individual vines to compete with each other. This promotes the growth of small, juicier grapes, enables the roots to grow deep into the soil more quickly, and makes better use of the valuable minerals and moisture in the earth. To achieve greater volume, color, and aromas, we chose not to plant the prevailing, high-yield types of grape.

Enology and quality

In three phases, we planted 18 different types of grape – six white and twelve red, each with a different origin. For example, the white Petit Manseng and red Tannat stem from southwestern France, while the white Viognier grape is primarily native to the Rhône and the red Carignan can be found throughout Italy and largely on Sardinia. Other grapes include Bordeaux varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, all of which are now common around the world. We also planted native grapes originating in Lazio such as the white Bellone and red Cesanese. Through care and persistence, we are realizing our dream to not only create wines made from single varieties but also offer an unmistakable aroma in the form of cuvées.

In this way, our ÔMINA ROMANA brand has developed its own signature. Like the Etruscans, who interpreted divine providence in mystical signs, you can determine the type of grape through the numerical sequence of the ÔMINA ROMANA cuvées. The cuvée names are inspired by gods, revealing a great deal about their character, while the numerical sequence provides insight: thanks to specific Codes for each type of grape, you can decipher the composition of each and every cuvée.

Our cuvées

Just as wind, weather, and passion join forces to make each grape unique, composition of the grape varieties is the process that completes a wine. We have perfected this process for our ÔMINA ROMANA cuvées and provided each with a mythological leading figure and a numerical code. Inspired by gods, the names reveal the character of the wines as follows:

Our cuvées

HERMES DIACTOROSThe nimble nature and light-heartedness of the Greek messenger of the gods Hermes Diactoros and patron saint to travelers characterize the wines in this range.DIANA NEMORENSISAs the Roman goddess of the hunt and enchanting protector of femininity, Diana Nemorensis is the leading figure of the wines in this range, embodying elegance and youthful power.JANUS GEMINUSAs a two-faced Roman god, he stands guard over the beginning and the end, and these superior strengths symbolize the wines of this range.CERES ANESIDORAWith her exceptional strength, this Roman goddess of agriculture made the earth fertile and rich. With her last name Anesidora (she who sends up gifts), Ceres does the same to the wines in this range.

Our cuvées

The Roman numerals transformed into letters of the Latin alphabet provide insight into the abbreviations of the type of grape. The codes of our DIANA NEMORENSIS I cuvée XIII V, III XIX, and III VI can be deciphered as follows:
XIII V = ME = Merlot
III XIX = CS = Cabernet Sauvignon
III VI = CF = Cabernet Franc
