2010 - The Vineyard of Popoli


Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Vigneto di Popoli 2010
A significant wine in our growth. After the success of Trebbiano Vigna di Capestrano and after having clarified the reasons for filtering the decanting of the bottom on the bottle, many colleagues maintained that the stronger influence of the yeasts was not due so much to the territory as to the fermentation cellar. To demonstrate that two Trebbiano grapes aged in the same way, in the same year, and in the same cellar, but coming from different parcels would have had different organoleptic profiles, we then decided to make wine with the Trebbiano grapes from the small parcel of Popoli in the same identical way as those of the Vigna di Capestrano. Hence the birth of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Vigna di Popoli.
The differences were outstanding: the fermentation times, the temperatures reached by the must, and above all the organoleptic profile from the very first notes of fermentation. Popoli is the Trebbiano of cold: high acidity, citrus notes and bouquets of Mediterranean shrubs. All in a year that also resulted in a balanced body and considerable longevity.

 

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vigneto di Popoli 2010  Grande annata per il montpulciano della vecchia pergola emblema della nostra piccola azienda. Da una potatura ancora piu corta abbiamo ottenuto uve con maturazione perfetta per un rosso moderno. Fermentazioni fluide e svinatura non anticipata per un vino di corpo, nei limiti e nelle proporzioni di una zona fredda. Notevole la persistenza.
