PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Cornacchia is a historic 17th-century family-owned estate currently run by Filippo and Caterina Cornacchia, siblings who have brought new energy and vision to the winery. They recently completed the conversion to certified organic viticulture. They currently bottle about one-third of the crop, selling the rest off in bulk. With a grape as prolific as Montepulciano, it is very important that yields, through special selection in the vineyard, are kept to a minimum.*

The estate comprises 74 acres in the Teramo province in the Northeastern corner of Abruzzo which is protected by the Grand Sasso range (9,560 feet) to the North and West and the Maiella range to the South. From the East, the vineyards are exposed to the moderating sea breezes from the Adriatic. It is considered to be one of the finest regions in Abruzzo. It was recently awarded the DOCG to set it apart from the plains-produced Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.*

​The terrain is calcareous clay, rich in lime and iron; the vineyards produce wines that are bigger in everything – tannins, alcohol, body, and color. With scrupulous vineyard management, the Cornacchias craft wines that transmit generosity while remaining elegant and fresh.*

Over the years, Cornacchia wines have received acclaim from Gambero Rosso, Veronelli, Robert Parker, Decanter, and the Wine Spectator. Their wines are proof of the heights to which the Montepulciano grape can reach.*

Fermented in stainless steel and aged for 6 months in Slavonian oak casks, today's offer perfectly balances structure with plush, ripe fruits. Full-bodied, it abounds with flavors of blackberries and black cherries entwined with balancing acidity and flanked by accents of savory herbs.
