More about this Producer
The company’s home is in the Abruzzo region of central Italy, where the Gran Sasso d’Italia (Great Stone of Italy) forms the centerpiece of the Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga. Within the park are found the highest mountains in continental Italy south of the Alps.
The team works with local growers utilizing their premium vineyards and viticultural expertise, while breaking with the Abruzzese model of high-output with quality. Instead, growers are rewarded for better viticultural practices, lower yields, and healthier fruit, and are coached by a team of expert viticulturists. Growers are paid by the hectare rather than by the kilo. The formula works well, with a dependable source of low yielding, high quality fruit and a huge team of pickers who can harvest a collective 100 Ha in 2 days rather than 2 weeks. Therefore the grapes can be picked at optimal ripeness.
Gran Sasso is the name of a project between friends Valentino Sciotti and Camillo De Iuliis, which involves wineries and wine brands in 3 different regions.
