Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva "A Marianna"
A Marianna (dedicated to Ottaviano and Antonia's grandmother), is not made every year. It comes from from a 1-hectare selection of the estate's oldest vines, dating back to 1962. The grapes were destemmed, crushed, and spontaneously fermented between stainless steel, Slavonian oak tonneaux (650L) and French oak tonneaux (450L). Maceration lasted 13 days. The first 24 months of aging were in stainlees steel, followed by an additional 42 months of aging Slavonian oak cask, with no new wood. Unfined/unfiltered and released in November 2018. 2,340 bottles made.
