In Central-Southern Italy we can find Abruzzi, a mainly mountainous and wild territory, that extends from the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea. The wine-growing area in the Abruzzi region is concentrated in particular in the internal and coastal hilly areas. The Abruzzi Apennines, the Maiella and the Gran Sasso are a strong barrier to the cold and humid air that arrives from the Tyrrhenian Sea, creating a clear separation between the maritime area and the innermost areas. Thanks to this protection and to suitable soils, the cultivation of wines in Abruzzi has reached very high levels of quality recognised on international markets.

Climate and Territory

The hilly and coastal strip of Abruzzi is characterised by a Mediterranean climate while in the inland areas the continental climate favours thermal excursions which affect the ripening of the grapes, increasing their aromatic concentration. The calcareous-clayey soils that fall within the production areas located in the hilly part are characterised by the breezes coming from the Apennine mountains and the sea. These soils are particularly ideal for the production of structured wines and, in relation to the Montepulciano grape, they give the best opportunity to express its potential. In the hilly part the soils are mainly calcareous and clayey particularly suitable for the production of important wines with great structure such as Montepulciano; the sandy and clayey soils present close by are more suitable for the cultivation of white berried grapes.
