Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Colline Teramane DOCG Riserva

The Neromoro cru was the result of exciting research and a special selection of Montepulciano grapes from a single plot. There is no doubt that the particular Montepulciano biotype found here and the age of the vines are the milieu for grapes rich in polyphenols, while a low yield per hectare ensures perfect ripening. Neromoro is our dream come true of a wine that expresses the qualities of our homeland, the breezes that cool it on summer afternoons, and our philosophy. Harvested from such a venerable vineyard, the wine is infused with its past and peasant roots. A wine that mirrors who we are: fervent, elegant passionate yet refined.
