Description

Details of wine

The Castorani Winery is experiencing a period of strong growth thanks to a group of friends who have decided to revive the production of the Abruzzo grape par excellence, Montepulciano d'Abbruzzo, which was produced in this winery in ancient times since the end of the 18th century.

At the head of this group of friends, we find the ex Formula 1 driver, Jarno Trulli, who once abandoned professional racing decides to return to his homeland and undertake the job of the winemaker.

All this takes place in an area that has always been devoted to wine growing, where the influence of the Adriatic coast and the Majella National Park make it possible to obtain grapes with unique qualities.

We are in organic cultivation, managed according to traditional methods to guarantee productions related to the peculiar characteristics of the surrounding area.

This Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Cadetto Bio 2019 comes from Trebbiano d'Abbruzzo, made from manually harvested organic grapes, fermented and aged in steel tanks.

The result is a white that stands out for its softness and freshness, in which all the sensations of a day spent on the slopes of the Majella are found.

The earliest records of this estate go back to the year 1793.This gorgeous property was part of Lady Adelina Ruggeri De' Capobianchi's dowry when she married the illustrious Raffaele Castorani, who's fame came from his years as a teacher at the Sorbonne in Paris and mostly from the development of the first cataract eye surgery. Ever since, the estate has been known as Villa Castorani. Later, another famous person acquired the estate, Antonio Casulli, born in Sardinia. Later, he became an International Law professor at the University of Naples, and went on to teach in Tokyo where he even earned the respect of the emperor Hirohito. It was during this time that the estate of Villa Castorani really developed with the acquisition of over 490 acres of cultivated land. After Casulli's death, the entire estate was divided, and thus began its decline. The Villa was abandoned and it seemed like all the wine making traditions were lost. The decline continued for many years, until 1999, when the estate's history and luster of yore were brought back to life thanks to the tenacious will of a group of friends, now business partners in the company. Each member personally supervises all the phases required for wine production: from the loving cultivation of the grapes, to the very careful harvest, the vinification, the promotion and the commercialization of the products. The absolute obstinacy, typical of the people from the Abruzzi region, the respect for the traditions and mostly the uncompromising pursuit of the best products, give Villa Castorani's wines the best character obtainable. The bottles of wine from the estate tell a beautiful story of passion, tradition and quality. Villa Castorani lies in an ideal setting: in the municipality of Alanno, in the province of Pescara, between the Majella national park and the nearby Adriatic sea. Sitting at 350 meters above sea level, it enjoys ideal sun exposure and night winds, and consequently, great thermal range. All of it gives the wines their unique and precious character. Today, like in the past, everything rotates around the beautiful Villa Castorani. The estate now sits on 75 acres of luxuriant and uncontaminated countryside. The grapes cultivated here are mostly red Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and whites Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Malvasia, Cococciola, Pecorino and Passerina. There is also an area where new experimental varietals are tested. The average age of the vineyards is over 30 years. All the area is cultivated following strict organic guidelines: neither chemical pesticides nor fertilizers are used.
