Italy - Abruzzo

The Abruzzo region is located east of Rome and borders the Adriatic Sea for around 130 kilometers. As early as the 7th century BC. Viticulture was started here by the Etruscans in the 1st century BC. Dominated by the Apennines with the two highest peaks Corno Grande and Monte Amaro, the area is around two thirds mountainous and one third hilly. In some cases, wine is grown at altitudes of up to 600 meters at the foot of the mountain range. The vineyards, covering around 33,000 hectares, have different soils and benefit above all from the Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers, which show large temperature differences between day and night, and cool and wet winters.
