Jumilla

Grapes

100% Monastrell

Interesting Fact

Because of the unique, rocky soil of Jumilla the vines are planted in what's called Pie Franco vines - or vines that are planted on their original rootstock and not grafted onto phylloxera resistant vines. This is thought to be the purest connection of the grapes to the soil!

Lazio

Grapes

50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet, 20% Sangiovese

Porchetta, guanciale pasta, and BEC sandwiches.

Interesting Fact

These grapes are hand picked and de-stemmed before a 12-18 hour maceration on skins to extract color and flavor. Then, 12 months of aging in large barrels helps soften the tannins and bring out the pure fruit notes.

Region

Abruzzo

Grapes

100% Trebbiano

Pretty aromas of lemon, honeycomb wax and white plum blend with a hint of walnut skin on the nose. There's good breadth and richness to the medium-bodied palate, with juicy yellow fruit struck against taut acidity.

Pairings

Roasted vegetables, fish sandwiches, and front porch conversations.

Interesting Fact

The hillside soils evolved on clayey marine sediments and have a good permeability to rainwater and a medium-textured clayey composition, characterized by a good limestone component and a rich minerality. These conditions are optimal for the cultivation of Trebbiano and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes of precious quality, so our vineyards of these grape varities are all located in our hillside estates.
