Classification

V.Q.P.R.D. Controguerra D.O.C. rosso Riserva Lumen.

Origin

The vineyards are located in the municipality of Controguerra, with a perfect southern exposure, approximately 295 metres a.s.l.

Composition of subsoil

Rather loose soil with small amounts of clay.

70% Montepulciano and 30% Cabernet-Sauvignon.

Characteristics of plant equipment

The new plant uses a vertical trellis system with approximately 5,000 stocks per hectare, the old plant uses a pergola trellis system with approximately 1,100 stocks per hectare.

Times of harvest and wine-making

The grapes used for the Lumen are among the last to be harvested after a careful and meticulous selection (at the beginning of October for the cabernet-sauvignon and between 8 and 12 October for the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo). Grapes are stemmed and softly crushed, and processed separately in stainless steel process tanks and macerate at a temperature of 28 – 30 °C, for approximately 15 days. Once malolactic fermentation is over, the wines obtained are combined and poured into 225 litre-barriques of various types of oak wood, where they age for approximately 18 months after which they are bottled. After that, the wine undergoes bottle refining for another 12-14 months in caves before being put on the market.
