The grapes are picked by hand from the vineyards situated between the hills facing the Adriatic Sea. The soil is a gravelly mixture and is about 500 – 650 feet above sea level. The best grapes are selected, destemmed and undergo a long maceration, utilizing the pumping over, cap management method. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled and refined for three months before being released.
An ideal “pasta wine,” Vino dei Fratelli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo also tastes great with various meat and poultry dishes, cheeses and cold cuts.
