Collefrisio, Abruzzo

"Our idea of wine is home soil, healthy grapes and well cared for vines. These elements allow for the creation of a wine fully reflecting its local characteristics."

Collefrisio is a young, forward thinking company located in the Chieti province of Abruzzo where the temperature is warm during the day and cool in the evening. This area is traditionally well known for the Montepulciano grapes which thrive in this climate. The outstanding team of young enologists and management has combined to make the company an overnight success in the winemaking business.

The estate's thirty-five hectares are divided into three distinct vineyards.  At the Guiliano Teatino vineyard (11 ha), Montepulciano and Pecorino grapes are grown in red clay soil in a microclimate determined by the mountains and the valley. Montepulciano and Pecorino grapes are grown in the Valle del Moro vineyard (12ha) located at the base of the Maiella mountains down to the sea and in the stony soils of the Morrecine vineyard (12 ha) located on a hill facing the sea

The wines from Collefrision are known for revealing a full bodied style with subtle tannins and great fruit.
