Risultato immagine per underwater team italy nemi

Lake Nemi, celebrated for the Roman Ships recovered from the lake bed in the 1930s, is acquiring a new reputation as an ideal environment for maturing a local wine. The bottles of wine, named Caligula after the ancient Roman Emperor who built the famous ships. lie immersed for a year in the water in the cool depths of the lake.

According to experts, the practice of keeping the wine under water has many benefits, such as the lack of oxidization, the constant temperature and the darkness. Since 2012, the local branch of the Under Water Team Italy has dived to retrieve some bottles for a ceremonial toast to the New Year, in the presence of the mayors of the adjacent towns of Nemi and Ariccia.
