Luca and Alfonso farm 3.5ha of vines in Pietranico on the slopes of the Gran Sasso mountain, very close to the Adriatic sea, and between two national Parks.  Their vines are managed organically and intercropped with ancient grains, olive trees and other crops as well as a series of apiaries to increase the biodiversity of their land. The project was started from scratch sourcing a large portion of their vines from the cuttings of Emideo Pepe’s old vines. Only Trebbiano and Montepulciano are planted in keeping with the tradition of the region.


The Cerusuola is direct press of montepulciano from blue marl and clay soils then fermented and aged in concrete.  Fresh, clean and perfect for the summer sun.  This is rose with character!  Only 800 bottles were made too!
