70% Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, 15% Passerina, 15% Chardonnay.

Characteristics of plant equipment

Vineyards are trained partly with a pergola trellis system with 1,100 stocks per hectare and partly with a row planting system, with 2,200 stocks per hectare. The rows are partly north-east and partly south-west oriented.
