Pietrantonj boasts a history of more than 200 years, with its complex fabric of passionate commitment, traditions, and innovation. Secure documentation dates back as early as 1791, testifying to the activities of our family, which have always focused on viticulture and agriculture. Fully eight generations of the family have engaged in winemaking activities on the estates in Vittorito and Corfinio, located in the heart of the Valle Peligna, the birthplace of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grape variety and the production centre, from the Roman era onwards, of noble and celebrated wines. The estates comprise today a total of 100 hectares (247 Acres), 60 (148 Acres) of which are in vineyard. The grapes are processed in the family’s historic cellars located in the centre of the small medieval hamlet of Vittorito. The estate vineyards constitute the first step of the winemaking process, and the cellars the final destination, a procedure rich in tradition and commitment, taking place still in the most ancient winery in Abruzzo, a vocation that represents and sums up the entire history of all the preceding generations, expert winemakers who have lived and laboured in that noble profession. Made from the grape Montepulciano, this wine is matured 6-8 months in 40hl oak botti, then a further period in the bottle. The wine is release three years after harvest. The wine appears a garnet-rimmed ruby red, with pleasant dried floral and fruit notes that are complemented by soft leather and earthy aromas. Light in texture with a smooth body, it offers sweet spice flavors of vanilla, anise and dried tobacco with a finishing touch of chocolate.
