An excellent example of montepulciano wine.
From 6 hectares of beautiful hillside vineyards, with an average age of 10 years, extended over the sunny Bucchianico hills, in the province of Chieti. Medium calcareous clay soils at an altitude of about 280 meters above sea level. The remarkable thermal excursions determine optimal conditions to give rise to high quality grapes.
100% Montepulciano, guyot-trained vineyards with low and selected yields per hectare.
Bunches are hand picked. Soft pressing and traditional red vinification, followed by a 30 days maceration of the skins in tanks making for an exquisite montepulciano d'abruzzo.
The wine is refined for 18 months in small oak barrels of 5 hl, then it evolves into tanks before bottling.
