ABRUZZO

Land of songs, brooks, mounts and great wines

The land and its riches

Abruzzo is a region of southern- central Italy, which borders with the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennines to the west, with Mount Maiella and the Gran Sasso d’Italia. From the mountains to the sea, in about 50 km of unique landscape, highlands, rolling hills, all is lush and unpolluted; fields of vines and olive trees reaching the coast. The region boasts a great biodiversity from a viticultural point of view, producing both native and international grapes.

Wines and grape varieties

The Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is one of the main grape varieties of the region. After a period of refinement and aging in wooden barrels it becomes the famous D.O.C. wine. From the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes you can also produce a rosé wine with extremely fine features. It is called “Cerasuolo” because it recalls the color of a ripe “cerasa” (cherry) and is fruity, mineral, soft, medium-bodied and easy to drink, perfect with a wide variety of dishes. Among the other D.O.C. wines produced in Abruzzo we can list the Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, obtained from Trebbiano grapes and other varieties such as Cococciola, Passerina, Pecorino, Malvasia. But that’s not all, many other wines are produced from native grape varieties in the region.

Great graples for great wines

The refined "Fantini by Farnese” wines are made with the best selected grapes coming from the Farneto Valley and other important estates in Abruzzo; they complete their aging process in the beautiful cellars of the Caldora Castle, a historical building that the company wished to renovate in order to safeguard the cultural heritage and the viticultural tradition of the territory of Ortona. A team of talented young winemakers and agronomists, headed by two internationally renowned super-consultants, constantly dedicate their work to the care of each production phase. The attention of the company to the smallest details has brought the Fantini wines towards new horizons of quality: for the top wines, for example, a double and rigorous selection of the single grapes is carried out, believing that only the best berries can be transformed into great wines.
