Volumnia Frusinate comes from the union of Sangiovese with Uva Giulia and Lecinate. Uva Giulia, an ancient grape variety, is grown mainly on flat and hilly land in the municipalities of Pescosolido and Sora. It almost totally disappeared around 1950, due to the abandonment of the countryside, but has survived thanks to the efforts of a few enthusiasts and is being developed again. Lecinaro, also called Lecinara, grows in a very restricted area near Frosinone, between the Comino Valley and the Liri Valley. The cluster is fairly compact, medium-sized conical in shape with blue-purple berries.
