at an altitude of 360mt above sea level between Lazio and Tuscany. The
volcanic soil lies on the border with the Lamone Forest and the
Saturnia’s Thermal Baths. The VISAGI Farm’s soil is reserved to the cultivation

is relatively small and resistant to the separation, it has a belated
ripening period, and the harvest usually takes place in November.
