Tuscolani derives from Tusculo. It is the territory where the Gens Iulia, of which Rea Silvia, the mother of Romulus and Remus, belonged, settled before Roma was born.
Vitus is here, in the navel of Roman civilization.
Very important for us is the city of Frascati, which gives its name to one of our PDOs wines. Frascati has always been a town of culture and nobility. It was in fact one of the stops of the Grand Tour of Italy between 1500 and 1700 and home to some of the most important noble families in Rome.
In this area, vines have been cultivated for more than 2500 years. Evidence of the “Malvasia Puntinata“ a typical grape variety of this region, can be found in “De Agricolturae” of Catone, and also Emperor Commodus talked about it.
