Winemaker's Notes

(From 2014 Vintage) The Montepulciano vine, which starts as a cerasuolo, originates in the Valle Peligna. This news confirmed by one the historian Michele Troia dating from the eighteenth century, therefore much earlier than the boasted Tuscan origins. in this area has undergone selections and is easily adapted to the environmental changes following its spreading in the neighboring territories and much of the Abruzzo region The name of this wine has no connection with the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the homonymy is purely coincidental. the latter, in fact, derives from the town where it is produced, while the one from Abruzzo derives from the vine which characterizes in a decisive way the blend
