Classification

V.Q.P.R.D. Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Doc Sitàra.

Origin

The vineyards are located in Controguerra, on the gentle hills declining towards the Adriatic Sea.

Composition of subsoil

Medium-textured soil, tending to clayey.

Grape

100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Characteristics of plant equipment

Vines are trained with a 3m x 3m pergola trellis system, with approximately 1,100 stocks per hectare, all in a hilly position.

Times of harvest and wine-making

Grapes are harvested during the second decade of September and, after a meticulous selection, are stemmed, crushed and left in contact with their skins for a short time (approx.15 hours) at a low temperature so that the typical scents can be extracted. The ordinary wine-making process takes place after that with a white-wine fermentation process at a controlled temperature, in the presence of selected yeasts.

Colour: it reminds of cherries, shiny and brilliant.
Nose: flower-like, typical, characteristic and persistent.
