The wine is fresh, mineral
Variety: Pecorino Colori d’Abruzzo – made with organic grapes
Organic procedures: CantinArte wants to grows the grapes without the use of herbicide, insecticide, systemic fungicides or fertilizers.
It grows in the surroundings of Bucchianico (300 meters above sea level) and Navelli (700 meters above sea level). This last Vineyard is located at the foot of Gran Sasso in a very windy place with a high temperature range. Here the soil is rich in skeleton, clay-calcareous and rocky. Row is the wine training with a vineyard density of 5200 grapevines per hectare. This wine is the result of a perfect synergy between two areas: the terroir of Bucchianico gives structure and longevity; that of Navelli brings elegance, freshness and minerality.
Time of vintage
First 10 days of September (this grape variety is able to reach a good sugar level without losing its great acidity; changing the harvesting time we are able to enhance the freshness and the structure of the wine)
