Before tasting their wines, I was skeptical about this statement but the wines quality proved to me that you can be big but still have a clear regional identity.

Avec cette incroyable diversité, il devient parfois difficile pour le consommateur de s’y retrouver. Quelle huile d’olive choisir dans cette marée de flacons dorés? Qui plus est, dans un contexte de qualité plus que variable, comment en arrive-t-on à différencier le bon grain de l’ivraie?

Rents have risen, trendy boutiques have opened up, and the ex-abattoir has been converted into an art gallery and cultural centre. But despite these changes, traditional Testaccio still exists. Take the metro to Piramide to explore this lively, authentic Roman neighbourhood, which is still viewed by many as one of the best places to find true Roman cuisine.
