Production Notes

The grapes were hand picked. On arrival at the winery, the fruit was destemmed and crushed, before a cold maceration for four days. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled, stainless steel and concrete tanks at temperatures of 24-26°C and lasted for 10 days. Continuous racking and punch-downs were performed to optimize extraction of flavours from the skins. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, which softened the acidity and added complexity to the final wine.

Producer Information

The Gran Sasso wines are part of the Fantini group, which was founded in 1994 by Valentino Sciotti with the aim of producing top-quality wine from Abruzzo. These wines are made by winemakers Rino Santeusanio and Francesco De Santis, with input from acclaimed consultant Alberto Antonini. Together, they create wines with a freshness and vivacity that sets them apart from many in this area.

The team work closely with their growers to produce a deep-coloured, clean and plummy young Montepulciano.
