ANCILLA CERASUOLO D'ABRUZZO DOC

Cerasuolo is a traditional country wine. It’s the wine offered to the guests because they are proud to be able to do it so well.

The grapes come from Loreto Aprutino. After the crusher-destemmer, the must goes into cryomaceration and then into temperature controlled fermentation.
Like the Trebbiano, we bottle it in February or March.

Some notes: pink bright cherry.
Intense aromas of red fruits especially cherry.
Dry in the mouth and juicy.
Pairs well with Vasto’s fish soup and with pizza.

Approximately 6.000 bottles are produced.

ARIES PECORINO IGT COLLINE PESCARESI

We produce only one Pecorino.
From one hectare of pergola planted by my father in 2000 we have produced, since 2003, this Pecorino.
The boxes of grapes are transported to the cellar in the early hours of the morning.
The grapes are pressed gently and the must is then decanted into stainless steel vats and barrels.
50 hl ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel vats whilst 24 hl are fermented in 4 600 ltr barrels from 2009.
The wine then stays of fine lees in stainless steel vats and barrels until February.
It is then bottled. It is at its best after the summer, and according to the harvest, it improves in the bottle even after some years.
Some notes: bright straw yellow. Aromas of candy and herbs. In the mouth dried fruit, mineral and fruity. Nice acidity and persistence.
In spring it matches well with pasta and asparagus, broad beans and peas dusted with pecorino cheese.
From autumn it’s perfect with mushroom dishes and with baked cheese toasties.
Approximately 9.000 bottles are produced.

OUR NAME and OUR HISTORY
 
My last name is Bulgarian. The Ciavolichs were wool merchants who, in 1500, arrived in Miglianico and where, in 1853, the family constructed their first wine cellar, which is one of today’s most ancient winemaking buildings in Abruzzo.  The building is spread over two floors: the ground floor was where the grapes were pressed and where mulled wine was produced.  The lower floor, on the other hand, is where the wine was left to age in the barrel and which could be reached by an underground tunnel hewn out of the earth - a passageway which could be used to escape from the village in times of trouble.

Our vineyards spread over the entire surrounding hillside, and life revolved around the harvest and the subsequent wine production.  When the carts arrived, laden with grapes from the countryside, the grapes were pressed inside the cellar and the must, via picturesque grids in the floor, poured down into the lower floor and directly into the wooden vats to ferment.  The liquid was left to age in great 132hl barrels, purposely built inside the cellar.
