Our farm is in a little village called Alanno, in the county of Pescara, 1010 feet above the sea level, between the Adriatic sea and the main mountains of the Appenini range (the Gran Sasso dItalia and the Majella) all of them within an half hour drive.
Since ancient times the area has been used for vineyards, with the training system of alberello (little trees) until the sixties, and then pergola abruzzese from the seventies. Winters are harsh with plentiful snow, and summers are cool and sunny. The rain are quite conspicuous and the farm area is windy.
These continuous thermal changes, together with the terroir, made of clay grounds and limestone grounds all very fertile, make possible to grow grapes with rich fragrances, colours and high sugar dose. The climate, bonded with the features of our autochthonous and international vines, gives great smells, tastes, alcohol content, brilliance and shades to our wines, making them unmistakable and of excellent quality.
The farm vineyards are around 10 hectares, that are going to be at least 13 in 2018. We grow the autochthonous Montepulciano dAbruzzo, Trebbiano dAbruzzo and Pecorino, and the internationals Chardonnay and Cabernet. We harvest around 21.000 lbs/hectare. The wines are DOC, sottozona Casauria and IGT depeding on kind.
