Our Pecorino grapes grow in the province of Chieti, in the Abruzzo region of central Italy, at 130m from sea level, facing South and East on limestone-clay soil.
AGE OF VINES:
In average 10-15 years old.
PLANT TRAINING AND DENSITY:
The vineyards are all trained using the Guyot method. Plant density is approximately 3,500 vines per hectare.
Our grapes are hand-picked in the first week of September.
The Pecorino grapes are de-stemmed and softly crushed. The must is then chilled to 12°C and left to rest for approximately 18 hours. The juice is then placed in stainless steel tanks for fermentation, which is carried out using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 18°C. The wine is left to rest in stainless tanks for 6 months and is further aged for 6 months in bottle before release.
