Why we love it
Cocciopesto is a a project started with the 2017 vintage and is also a material used since Roman times, different from Terracotta. The Trebbiano d’Abruzzo vinified in cocciopesto, made with grapes from a 50 year old vineyard, a unique Trebbiano d’Abruzzo.
The grapes, not pressed, are fermented in the cocciopesto with indigenous yeasts. This is a so called "orange wine", after ten days of maceration, after removing the skins and stalks, the wine returns to the cocciopesto to finish the fermentation producing an elegant and delicate wine with a decidedly mineral character. A great Trebbiano d’Abruzzo for important fish courses and risotto but also fresh, medium mature cheeses.
The artisan who made it

The vineyards, at about 300 metres in altitude, protected by the Gran Sasso mountain and only 10 kilometres from the sea, enjoy an exceptional microclimate. The winery follows organic practices, without chemical herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers.
