Fattoria La Valentina was established in 1990 in Spoltore, in the hills near Pescara. Following the early years of research in the Santa Teresa vineyard, the winery’s objective and passion became the quest for quality and the desire to promote the Abruzzese DOCs. Two new developments representing our progress with this goal occurred in 1998: the Binomio project was established, and Luca D’Attoma took over the technical management of the cellars and vineyards. We began to understand, respect and care for our land a little more in order to obtain healthier, more authentic wines every year. We make increasing use of farming methods that limit the use of chemicals and technology since we are convinced that this is the way to improve in quality. We interfere as little as possible in the land’s natural processes, adhering to the idea that “The premise for the DOC is the mark the vine leaves on its grapes”. Our wines are made by nature and our work should not inhibit the expression of the vine. We seek to respect the fruit of our land both on the vine and in the bottle, and to practice winemaking that allows for the fullest expression of our region’s special qualities. Thanks to the features of the microclimate and region and vines well-suited to this land, our wines have a distinctive and unique character. The nearby forests, hills or mountains, and the varying winds are all determining factors in expressing the vine’s originality. Hence our wines: Binomio, made exclusively from the grapes of a 4-hectare vineyard in San Valentino in Abruzzo Criteriore; Bellovedere and Spelt, from grapes from the Spoltore vineyards. Our aim is to make consistently authentic wine Read less

A hint of hay coupled w twist of caramel. Multiple layers from front to back. A montepulciano that stands up to the hearty healthy and hale foods of Abruzzo. Arrosticini , prosciutto, pecorino cheese.
