Abruzzese wines and Abruzzo wine in general do not enjoy the right reputation beyond our national borders, despite the quality of its products is very high and its most important grape variety, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, is the basis of production of important Italian wines and is in fact particularly appreciated for the red wines of Abruzzo, despite the fact that even the white wines of Abruzzo know how to defend themselves well and are on an equal footing with many other whites of Italy.
The wine-growing area at the heart of the production of Abruzzo wines is concentrated in particular along the coastal hill and in some inland hilly areas on mainly dry, permeable and calcareous-clayey soils subject to a mild climate where the mountain range of the Abruzzo Apennines naturally protects the vineyards from the cold and humid winds coming from the sea generating very favorable conditions for the cultivation of grapes.
The Montepulciano Abruzzese and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo are the main vineyards at the base of the majority of production in the territory, which respectively generate great and structured red wines from Abruzzo and fragrant white wines from Abruzzo.
The Cantina Valentini
It is a wine territory dotted with farms and wineries that differ between large producers and small businesses but, among these, the best known is undoubtedly the Cantina Valentini.
The farm in Abruzzo Valentini is one of the few wineries in Abruzzo to have taken its fame far beyond the Italian borders thanks to numerous awards and the production of Abruzzo wines of the highest quality that justifies a price significantly higher than any other producer in the territory.
The Cantina Valentini is based in Loreto Aprutino in the province of Pescara, one of the 300 most beautiful villages in Italy, and the wines of Abruzzo Valentini are the symbol of the winemaking tradition and ancient craftsmanship transported intact to the present day.
The company covers 65 hectares of vineyards where the great classics of the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo territory are cultivated, which gives life to the homonymous red wine from Abruzzo, and the Trebbiano d'Abruzzo which generates the award-winning white wine of the same name from Abruzzo, in an absolutely traditional way and as little interventionist as possible both in the vineyard and in the cellar, in order to allow the most natural expression possible of the cultivations.
