Gran Sasso

Abruzzo, abruzzo Italy

The Gran Sasso wines are made by Valentino Sciotti and his team. Rino Santeusanio is the winemaker while Alberto Antonini acts as consultant. Together, they ensure that the wines have a freshness and vivacity that sets them apart from many in this area. They work closely with their growers to produce a deep-coloured, clean and plummy young Montepulciano, as well as their 'riserva' style Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane DOCG.

The 'Alta Quota' Colline Teramane comes from a zone in the northern part of Abruzzo that is renowned for the quality of its wine, whereas the Trebbiano grapes are grown in the cooler areas of the Apennine foothills and fermented at low temperatures. The Pecorino is apparently named after the resemblance that the bunch of grapes bears to a sheep's head. A relatively rare variety, there are only 300 hectares planted in Abruzzo and Le Marche.
