Montepulciano is a grapevine variety originating from the Peligna Valley. Its red grapes are the basis for the production of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, a DOC certified red wine, rich in structure and flavour

Young Montepulciano vineyards are located at an altitude of around 400 metres and farmed by applying the methods of organic agriculture to a vernacular cultivation system consisting of horizontally formed pergolas

The grape harvest is concentrated during late September and early October. Grapes are transformed in a local wine cellar, which operates through advanced vinification processes directed toward the production of organic certified wines
