The Gran Sasso vineyards are situated among the hills in the provinces of Chieti and Teramo in the region of Abruzzo while the beautiful modern winery is located in the town of Ortona. Abruzzo is located in the central eastern part of Italy on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The unique position of the vineyards allows them to benefit from the sea and mountain breezes, producing wines that are full in body and truly represent the characteristics of the region.
Valentino Sciotti is involved with a number of wineries in Puglia, Campania (he is the man behind Vesevo) and his native Abruzzi. The Gran Sasso wines are made by young winemaker Marco Flacco and display a freshness and directness of fruit that is seldom found in this region.
The red - Yep, lovely wine, and a fine follow up last yearâ€™s release. Cherries, nuts, slightly floral with some sweet new leather and dried herb. Medium bodied, fresh and fruity with a lightly chalky tannic grip on the finish. Terrific weekday drinkingâ€¦and not sweet or hot either. Slightly better than the 2008....Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
The White - Stainless steel vinification. From north facing mountain vineyards in Abruzzo. This is rich in fruit yet balanced with good acidity and long racy finish. Round, ripe apple and pear fruits on the palate. Clean and bright, try with chicken, fowl, grilled fish and light antipasti. Try with light fare and delicate fish preparations or on its own as a perfect aperitif.
