The wise use of some plots of land owned by Petra results in a fresh, easy-to-drink wine of quality reflecting the soil in which the vines grow. The vineyards are located at the foot of the hills, some in the Suvereto and some in Riotorto area. The soil is predominantly clay and sand, the reason for the choice of this variety that gives a light, aromatic wine. The grapes are picked by hand from late August onwards and, to bring out their fruity nature, are left to macerate for just 7 to 10 days.
Zingari was born as an experimental vineyard to test the attitude of its varietals: Syrah, Merlot, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot.
The wine traces its roots to an ancient water spring that was a stop-over for all those pilgrims and wayfarers who were travelling along the Aurelia Street, hence the name Zingari (Gipsies), and could seek refreshment by resting nearby its crystal clear waters.
