The origin of its name comes from the white snow covered peak of the Gran Sasso Mountain (Cima Bianca = white peak) which recalls the freshness of this white wine, produced from typical white grape varieties of Abruzzo region. This blend is intended to emphasize the most typical aspects of these varietals by expressing its fruity character and great freshness. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel tanks by controlled temperature, for about 8-10 days. Delicate aromas on the nose, which recall those of flowers, fresh and vibrant. Delicate in the mouth, plenty of lively fresh fruit and penetrating flavour.
Cima Rosa is made of Montepulciano dAbruzzo grapes. Limited production. The “Cima Rosa” has a lively wild cherry-red colour and a fresh bouquet with fine hints of fruity notes. The wine is well-balanced, elegant, pleasantly fresh and fruity.
The name “Mayro” comes from the latin word “mavrus”, which means black, dark, recalling the dark colour of this wine. Mayro is produced from 100% selected Montepulciano grapes. The maceration lasts 10 days in steel fermenting vats, followed first by alcoholic and then by malolactic fermentation. The wine is then transferred into oak barrels of 15 hectolitres for a period of about 6-8 months. Then it is kept bottled for 2-3 months before being released. Delicate aromas of plum and cherries on the nose, full-bodied in the mouth with a long intense aftertaste.
Azienda agricola Fosso CornoOur history and mission Fosso Corno Estate is located in Roseto Degli Abruzzi in the province of Teramo and covers 30 hectares on a single hill. From one side of the hill you can admire the deep blue of the Adriatic Sea, whereas towards the west you can enjoy a view of the imposing mountains of the Gran Sasso.
This generous land is particularly endowed with a fortunate natural position, and is renowned for its typical wines. The growth of interest in Montepulciano wine produced in the region of Abruzzo, led our family to purchase this estate in 2001. In 2002 all the existing vineyards were uprooted and substituted with new vineyards. Between January and February 2003, 9 hectares of Montepulciano were planted (R7 clone and AP-MP1 clone) with espalier and with a density of 4500 stumps per hectare. Another 11 hectares were planted between 2004 and January 2005.
But the work is not over yet. Our engagement is still going on in making a product of the highest quality. This means serious work of experimental agronomy and vineyard care.
Fosso Corno Estate must make itself known as a great interpreter of the most typical wine of this region, the Montepulciano DAbruzzo . This is our aim for the near future.
Fosso Corno will stand out as the leading actor of the tipical wine of this region, the Montepulciano dAbruzzo. This is our aim!
