The ancient Sanguis Jovis (Blood of Jupiter) of the Romans has today become the most successful Italian grape variety in the world. Used mainly in Tuscany for producing some of the finest wines, the soil and climate conditions throughout Central Italy are ideal for its cultivation, in particular at elevations between 200 and 450 meters, in a warm and dry climate and limestone soil. These are the exact conditions in our own terrior in Abruzzo, where it produces a ruby red wine, smooth, balanced and well-structured, with an aroma characterized by ripe red fruits, fine spicy notes and hints of plum and tobacco.
