For generations, the Tiberio family has been linked with the worlds of wine and agricolture. Finally after years of working for others, all the while gaining experience and expertise. They decided to build their own winery. Riccardo Tiberio spent years seeking out the most favourable area for his precious vines.
Eventually in 2000 he found the perfect site, with an exceptional combination of position and soil structure. The new estate has an area of 31 hectares and has been planted with a selection of indigenous varieties, based on extensive analysis of the soils and with advice from one of Italy's most renowed vine nurseries. A further research project has also been set up in partnership with the university of Bologna. This aimed at selecting and improving ancient local varieties.
All this became reality in 2001 with the planting of the vines and today we are proud to present the release of our wines, produced from montepulciano d'Abruzzo, trebbiano d'Abruzzo, aglianico, pecorino and moscato di Castiglione. The last two are indigenous varieties we have helped to recovery from ancient vines in the area. We have also planted a seleciton of international varieties in order to assess and understand thei potential. In this area these are: merlot, cabernet, sauvignon, chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
Renowed oenologist dr. Riccardo Cotarella has guided us in all aspect of cellar management and winemaking, giving confidence in the quality of our wines. this exciting new winery project seeks to be both innovative and to rediscover the true potential of the local terrori and indigenous grapes.
In other words to marry tradition with new technology. This is a story of passion, traditions and hard work, and one we are committed to for the long term.
