Description

Details of wine

Ausonia is a small family-run company that in recent years has abandoned conventional agriculture by embracing the principles of Biodynamics.

We are in the splendid Abruzzo lands on the slopes of the Gran Sasso which protects the vineyards, a rich territory which is also influenced by the proximity to the sea and the WWF Oasis Calanchi di Atri Regional Nature Reserve.

All these elements create an ideal microclimate for growing vines. with good rainfall and excellent temperature ranges.

One of the wines this company is focusing on is Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, made with hand-picked Montepulciano grapes and left to macerate on the skins.

A multipurpose wine, fresh and fruity. A successful interpretation of this indigenous grape variety with great potential.

CELLAR

Name: Ausonia
Start-up year: 2008
Cultivated hectares: 11
Winemaker name: Simone Binelli
Address: C.da Nocella - Atri (TE)
Web Site: www.ausoniawines.com

It all began in 2005 when Simone Binelli followed his great passion, wine, and with the support of his wife he enrolled in Viticulture and Enology at the University of Florence. A path that led him within a few years to abandon the job of pharmacist and begin to cultivate the love for the countryside and for the natural beauty of Abruzzo. Thus Ausonia was born, a small and fascinating reality in Atri, in the province of Teramo, a winery that could not but favor the typical varieties of the territory, from pecorino to Trebbiano to, of course, to Montepulciano. Today, Simone's wines are particularly elegant and expressive, faithful witnesses to the territory and to the vintage that saw them being born. Magnetic wines, like its history.
