ORIGIN

The vineyards are located in the municipality of Controguerra, about 260 metres a.s.l.

COMPOSITION OF SUBSOIL

Medium-textured soil, tending to clayey.

CHARACTERISTICS OF PLANT EQUIPMENT

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

TIMES OF HARVEST AND WINE-MAKING

Grapes are generally harvested during the first decade of October, and, after an accurate selection are stemmed and very softly crushed and processed following the traditional "red" method, which includes a long-term maceration of the skins inside stainless steel process tanks at a controlled temperature of 28°C. Once malolactic fermentation has taken piace, wine ages inside Slavonian oak barrels (25 hl each) for approximately six months, after which bottling takes piace. Bottle refining takes piace for 2 to 3 months before this wine can be sold.
