Prince Alessandrojacopo Boncompagni Ludovisi owns the Tenuta di Fiorano estate, which is situated at via di Fioranello 19–31 between the Appia Antica (Appian Way) and Ciampino airfield. Tenuta di Fiorano's notoriety is inextricably connected to the legendary late Prince Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi. Between the 1940s and the 1950s, Prince Alberico developed a passion for winemaking. He planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for his red wines and Malvasia Candida and Sémillon, both of which were new to Italy at the time, for his whites. When asked about his estate, Prince Boncompagni said, "My uncle was ahead of his time and had a keen intuition for viticulture." During a time when nobody else in Italy was growing these varieties, he planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sémillon at Tenuta di Fiorano," says Mr. Boncompani Ludovisi. And on the property, he raised everything organically long before it was cool.
