In this zone original red wine was produced and appreciated from Italian and international markets. “F. P. V. ” company, in the sixties for several problem, closed and the original farm was fragmentized. Today the enology activity is exclusively to the familiar consumption, it supplies grapes of optimal quality. The produced grapes are very fine but not the wines.
Although the great vocation to the viticulture of this discrete remains. The necessity to value this district, with particular reference to Atina and the adjacent zones has placed the necessity to recover also the enology vocation of these zones. For this scope the “Istituto Sperimentale per l’Enologia” s.o.p. of Velletri in collaboration with the local agencies has started a plan with the objective to supply useful indications in order to start a qualified enology activity.

The analysis of the distribution of natural plant populations allows an ecological characterization of cultivated environments in thermal, water and trophic terms; it guides the choice or selection of plants (or grape varieties) to cultivate (Astruc et al ., 1984, 1987; Delpoux, 1971; Jacquinet and Astruc, 1979). This approach has given good results in areas where the topography is the determining factor in the ecological differentiation of the terroirs.
