MONTI PAGANO

Municipality

Roseto degli Abruzzi e Morro d'Oro

Area

Abruzzo

The Montipagano estate embraces 27 hectares that have been farmed organically since they were first planted. The location on the slopes of a south-facing hillslope near Roseto degli Abruzzi is close to the picturesque village of Montipagano with views onto the Gran Sasso d'Italia massif.

The principal vine variety is montepulciano, for which two tried and tested training systems have been adopted: low-cordon upwards-trained and spur pruned; and long-pruned overhead trellis.
