Montepulciano d’Abruzzo “Madia” is a perfect example of a traditional Abruzzese wine. The deep, intense pitch black hue, with its typical purplish glints, is due to Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes, rigorously selected on the hills of Villamagna, Abruzzo, at an altitude of about 200 metres.

The unique south-west aspecting of the vines and the limestone and clay soils, together with a lucky position between seas and mountains, and yield per hectare kept under 140 quintals, guarantee the excellent structure and the good organoleptic complexity of this enjoyable red wine. The grapes are picked in the first ten days of October, and consequently the maceration in steel thanks at controlled temperature allows to extract the the color from the skins. The wine then matures for a year in steel vats, and after the refinement continues for 3 months in the bottle.
