Abruzzo is a mountainous region on the Adriatic coast, about half way down Italy. With 83,000 vineyard acres it ranks 10th in size among Italy’s appellations. Though the Apennines, the mountains that define the region, keep Abruzzo off the usual routes for wine tourism, Abruzzo is Italy’s fifth most productive wine region.
The Montori family boasts an aristocratic origin in the territories of Abruzzo. Their presence and ownership of estates is documented since 1600.
The winemaking technique expresses one of the strong points regarding the innovation of this winery.
Maceration is carried out for 5-6 days at a controlled temperature, and then ends in stainless steel containers.
The result is an intense ruby red color when consumed young. When aged, the wine is closer to brick color.
