Cantina Tollo Gufo Merlot

In central Italy there is fossil evidence of grapevines dating back two million years, but the first traces of agricultural activities oriented to grape cultivation itself date back to the end of the Bronze Age. In Abruzzo, the first evidence of wine production stretches back in pre-Roman times, with funerary pottery unearthed in the monumental cemeteries around L’Aquila.

In ancient Rome, an owl was the soul bird of Goddess Minerva.”Gufo” stands for Owl, the mysterious night creature moving at ease through the dark, in all times symbol of knowledge, wisdom and prophecy.

Colle Corviano Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC

The Abruzzo are rather unknown as a winegrowing region, except for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, which originates from it. The winery Colle Corviano in Loreto Aprutino belongs to the growing region Pescara, where Montepulciano and Trebbiano grow traditionally in the rather warm climate characterized by the Adriatic Sea.

This wine is wonderfully full, soft with hints of vanilla, accompanied by ripe dark fruit, and a touch of chocolate. The finish is long and very soft.

Poggio Dragone Sangiovese-Merlot Terre di Chieti IGP

Ancient legends recount tales of nymphs, giants and winged serpents in the encompassing Apennine mountains. During the 5th century BC, the most feared mythical dragon devastated Ate and Tixa, in the southern part of Abruzzo. St. Leucio, famed slayer was summoned to kill the dragon. Today St. Leucio Cathedral stands on the monster’s den and contains the dragon’s 2 meter rib as proof of the diocesan’s bravery.

Hand-harvested grapes from the Abruzzo region make up this fruit-forward red wine. Classic Italian varietal Sangiovese is combined with French Merlot and aged for three months in large vessels made from oak, to soften and round out the tannins. Sangiovese gives crunchy red fruits, brisk acidity and fine tannins for structure, while Merlot adds soft, fleshy red stone fruits, producing a plush, satisfying red.
