On the volcanic, or calcareous hills around Rome, the towns at "one day travel by horse" of Aprilia, Frascati, Marino, Velletri, or Cori for example, have provided historically endless columns of wine barrels to Rome, and to the legions departing from Ostia.  The wine of the Romans are mainly white wines, one would think, while the reds, instead, boast a good, nice production of Nero Buono, and Cesanese dal Piglio, just to make two examples. 

We propose a week based in Rome and in one of the welcoming towns of the Hills, alternating tastings in the city, with the classic tastings at the wineries.
