Iole Rabasco inherited her family’s small vineyard and olive grove, neither of which have ever been treated with chemicals. And she’s taken that blessing and run with it. Her property is nestled in north-central Abruzzo where you have unique meso- and micro-climates. Her 3.5 hectares are located in the village of Pianella, in the province of Pescara, about 40 kilometres from the Adriatic Sea. The base of the Gran Sasso mountain range runs along its western edge.
Ruby red in the glass, the wine has aromas of red fruits, in particular Morello cherries and plum. The palate is smooth with good acidity and minerality with dominant flavours of strawberry and raspberry.
