This is an ambitious, energetic cooperative that is producing great quality, deliciously fruity Montepulciano. Started in 1969 and based near Chieti, not far from the coast, it has now grown to 400 members and covers 700 hectares. The grapes are well-matched to the soil types with the Montepulciano grown on loamy soils while the the sandy limestone sites are used for the whites, and the proximity of the sea ensures cooler nights to help lengthen the ripening process.
