Feudo Antico was created on a small plot of
land in the heart of Abruzzo. It is in Italy's smallest DOP and the
first designation of its kind in Abruzzo. Starting from the 2013
vintage, all wines are Magis certified, the most advanced project
for the sustainability of wine production in Italy.
Currently their 15 hectares are cultivated using native
varieties producing limited yields to ensure quality is retained.
Clearly they highly value the land they work and this attitude is
continued in the winery where the fruit and wine come into contact
with no wood whatsoever, only concrete and glass, to guarantee the
purity of the fruit and its flavours is conveyed from the vineyard
direct to the glass.
- Tullum PDO covers an extremely limited area - 300 hectares in
the Municipality of Tollo in the province of Chieti - and is
characterised by rigid production parameters.
- The density of cultivation must be no less than 3,300 vines per
hectare, vinification and bottling must be carried out within the
area, and grapes coming from vineyards located on the valley floor
or situated at less than 80m above sea level are not
- The vines produce limited yields and only organic or low
environmental impact winemaking techniques are used.
- To mature the wines they use glass-concrete containers and
bottles in the cellar, with the exception of Reserve wines, to
ensure thermal stability without resorting to refrigeration, and to
allow the wine to express its natural qualities without coming into
contact with wood.
- Only wild fermentation is used for the organic wines with
minimal processing and no filtering.
