It grows in Pescosansonesco at 550 meters above sea level. Vineyards are located at the foot of Gran Sasso in a very windy place with a high temperature range. Here the soil is clay-calcareous and rich in minerals

The harvest is in the middle of October.  Red vinification with skin contact for 10-15 days. Fermentation occurs with selected yeasts at low temperature. Malolactic fermentation is spontaneous.

The wine ages in steel tanks, then is placed in 60hl oak barrels for 4 months.

 

 

 

Producer’s notes-

“This Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is the result of an accurate selection of grapes coming from one of our grandfathers’ estates. Our grandfathers owned it since the beginning of the twentieth century and they were given the nickname of ” cocciarosce ” i.e. ginger haired heads, because of the colour of their hair. Many generations after them, Francesca was born with the same ginger hair of our grandfathers, and we dedicated this wine line to her, because this wine recalls our origins: with its strength, elegance and sincerity it expresses the heritage that has been handed down through love and passion for the wine”
