Vineyard and Winery
Grapes for the Sangiovese 'Terre di Chieti' are grown in the communes of Ortona and San Salvo on the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. Located between 100 - 150 metres above sea level, the vines are planted on South-East facing slopes on clay-limestone soil and trained using a pergola training system.
The grapes were delicately destemmed and crushed before undergoing an initial cold maceration for two days. Maceration and fermentation followed at 20-22°C for 10 days. Between 10 and 20% of the wine was aged in oak with the remaining aged in stainless steel.
