The Farnese group owns Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti Zabu, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti...
del Vulture and Tufarello, among others, but this is their flagship winery. The vineyards are based in the northern part of the Abruzzo, where ripeness and freshness combine in the wines. Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value.
The grapes for this wine are grown in the oldest vineyards of Farnese in central Abruzzo. Vines are 20-30 years old on average and they are trained following the Pergola Abruzzese system.
Grapes are handpicked and undergo a careful selection in the winery. After selection, the berries are crushed and destemmed. The must is kept in contact with the skins during a short cold maceration. After the static clarifcation, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 16-18°C. After 3 months fining on lees, the base wine is fermented in small stainless steel pressure tanks (prise de mousse) following the Charmat method.
The wine is a brilliant straw yellow withan elegant and persistent perlage. It has complex aromas on the nose, with hints of green citrus fruits and foral notes. On the palate it is elegant, mineral-tinged and well-balanced.
