“Elegant but at the same time deeply material. Difficult to frame in the classic schemes of purity. Rosario is a frontier wine that reveals energy and sensuality from the first to the last sip. The soul of Trebbiano and Malvasia meets 1/4 of the best
Nero Buono in direct pressing. They unite, they influence each other, they find strength in intermingling. They ferment together, spontaneously, in fiberglass, giving unexpected acidity, elegance, fruit and depth. There is the vineyard and there
is the volcano but there is also something elusive; the salt and balsamic of Mediterranean herbs. Rosario is a hymn to freedom and letting go, it combines strength and refinement, a territorial heart and originality. Rosario is the new, half-caste rosé of the Castelli Romani!”


In 2019 a band of four friends - Rocco, Fabio, Luca & Gianmarco - founded I CA RO (an acronym standing for i Castelli Romani) . The collective group are childhood friends, born and raised in central Rome. After working in the blossoming enoteca scene and with several small natural winemakers around Italy, they decided it was time they went to work creating a new vision of Roman wine, from the volcanic soils of the Castelli Romani just south of the city. From our perspective ICARO represents the vanguard of the exciting movement happening in and around Rome. We’ve been saying for years that the reason that the Italian Natural Wine Movement felt perhaps a little behind the curve with respect to say the French movement, was because Italy lacked a central hub of culture and enthusiasm for natural wine...it lacked a Paris. Today Rome is dotted with budding new enoteche/wine bars and trattorie that focus and serve natural wine. It has become a thriving market for producers around Italy to showcase their work and, as we see with projects like ICARO, it is inspiring a new generation of winemakers to take up the practice.
