Abruzzo
Located in the east coast of central Italy, Abruzzo is a wine region which dates back to the sixth century B.C., when the Etruscans first introduced viticulture to the region, but went into decline for many centuries until about 50 years ago. Since then, there has been ample attempt to revive the viticulture of the beautiful region of Abruzzo, which is surrounded by mountains and is home to many national parks and forests.



Although the most favorable grape growing conditions can be found in the low hills of Teramo, the whole region boasts of perfect conditions for viticulture. As a result of various minerals found in the soil structure, bountiful sunshine, moderate rainfall and cool temperatures at night, the region produces grapes which are bursting with full flavour. The three DOC produced in Abruzzo are the Contro Guerra, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and the one DOCG is Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane. The main grapes used here are red montepulciano and white Trebbiano.

Luca Maroni
The depth of its impenetrable purple-bluish are visually staggering...The extract is maximally concentrated, and its majestic, dense, tannic apex is balanced by the softness, the vivid gustatory acidity and the pulpy native grape, able to compose a flavour of perfect roundness and souplesse. The aroma and taste integrity is absolutely shining, as well as the gloriously juicy and archetypically considerable raw material. Certainly, among the best Montepulciano D’Abruzzo ever, a champion of analytical and sensory quality simply unattainable and dazzling
