Loreto Aprutino

Situated in the foothills of the Gran Sasso Mountain in Abruzzo’s North East, the Torre dei Beati vineyards benefit from a long cool ripening season with significant diurnal temperature fluctuations, ensuring physiological ripeness and balanced, ripe fruit. It is this poise and elegance that characterise the wines of Torre dei Beati.

Adrianna Galasso and Fausto Albanese started producing Montepulciano in 2000 from a vineyard given to Adrianna by her father, which he had planted back in 1972.

Loreto Aprutino

Situated in the foothills of the Gran Sasso Mountain in Abruzzo’s North East, the Torre dei Beati vineyards benefit from a long cool ripening season with significant diurnal temperature fluctuations, ensuring physiological ripeness and balanced, ripe fruit. It is this poise and elegance that characterise the wines of Torre dei Beati.

Adrianna Galasso and Fausto Albanese started producing Montepulciano in 2000 from a vineyard given to Adrianna by her father, which he had planted back in 1972. Understanding the maxim that great wines are made in the vineyard, they embarked on a program of organic faming as well as one of faultless rigour during harvest.

The harvest consists of as many as six passes in the vineyard, hand selecting only optimally ripe grapes, free from disease and imperfection. The fruit is then meticulously sorted to refine the selection. Winemaking is simple with minimal intervention; natural ferments are allowed to proceed at their own pace, and no recipe is applied to oak use or length of elevage – the vintage and the fruit direct the actions.

In addition to Montepulciano – in different expressions, from Cerasuolo to commanding single vineyard bottlings – Torre dei Beati also produce a textured and fragrant white from the almost forgotten, though steadily resuscitating, Pecorino grape.
