Tasting Notes: The limited edition Pietrame Montepulciano comes from the powerful soil of Abruzzo and shows an impressive fullness, fine structure and good balance. The intense fruit of the wine shows a complex aroma of black currant, cranberry and cherry, complemented by a nice spiciness, very good acidity and freshness. 

The Domain: Cantina Tollo was founded in 1960 when the Abruzzo countryside had depopulated once again, and many Italians had left the country searching for a better future. On the other hand, our fathers, winemakers for generations, decided to stay in the vineyards, creating Cantina Tollo. Playing a leading role in the sixties and seventies in an exciting period for winemaking, which brought the Abruzzo region to life, Cantina Tollo played an active part in helping to bring about a radical change in the local wine-growing landscape. While there was a fall in production around Teramo and L’Aquila, the areas occupied by vineyards in the Chieti province grew little by little, especially in Tollo, which became a real “City of Wine”.

Cantina Tollo has also had an important part to play in the process of regulation, initiatives for the protection of regional wines, and quality improvement programs for grapes and winemaking techniques. Today, it is one of the most important and established businesses in the Italian winemaking industry. With a presence in all countries of the European Union, in North America, and in the Far East, it exports 35% of its production, with particular attention to the emerging markets of Russia, India, and China. The aging facilities in Tollo comprise large oak casks, tonneaux, and barrels alongside vitrified cement tanks, which are considered the best for aging. Passion, commitment, and shared values have guided Cantina Tollo at every turn in its history and continue to accompany it in its successes.
