Cocciopesto

Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC

The future is shaped by the past with COCCIOPESTO Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, a project that began to take shape with the 2017 vintage, when we decided to make a Trebbiano using cocciopesto.
The jars known as cocciopesto are made from opus signinum, an ancient technique that mixes brick, stone fragments, sand, binder and water, then is air-dried for at least 30 days.
Thanks to its microporous qualities cocciopesto triggers micro-oxygenation and enhances the sensory qualities and aroma of the wine without leaving traces.
The result is a refined, delicate wine with a decidedly mineral character.
