Vineyards

The grapes for this wine come from the small farms controlled by the Farnese group in the areas around Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri. The vineyards have a south-eastern exposure and the soils are a mixture of clay and limestone.

Vinification

Once the grapes were received at the winery, they were gently crushed and destemmed, and then underwent cold maceration for three days. Maceration and fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days at temperatures of 24 – 26°C.

Producer

The Farnese group owns Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Zabù, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Cantina di Diomede and Tufarello, among others, but this is their flagship winery. Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring that these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value. Their elegant and striking packaging makes them stand out on the shelf or table.
