This Riserva is produced from 100% Montepulciano grapes cultivated in our Fosso Corno Estate. The vineyards from which we produce our Montepulciano D’Abruzzo DOC Riserva are distinguished by the special attention which is dedicated to the pruning. The aim is to limit fruit production and create ideal conditions for the air to circulate around the productive layer of the vines. These are the essential conditions for ensuring perfect ripening of the Montepulciano grapes and also a uniform growing of leaves.
During the ageing process, the wine is kept in steel for about 12 months and then in oak barrels of 15 hectolitres for another period of about 12 months. Before being released it is kept bottled for 2-3 months.
