We had to use our intuition, patience, and a good dose of courage to dream up and create a grand family of wines whose variety and richness derive from a land that may seem harsh and rugged but, if ably interpreted, holds many delightful surprises. It is an ancient, Mediterranean land, not a single, unified landscape but countless diverse landscapes. Not just one terroir but one after another, not one climate, but a series of microclimates that give strength and character to each individual wine.
Torrepasso (Montepulciano d’Abruzzo), Tegèo (Pecorino d’Abruzzo), Coda d’Oro (Passerina d’Abruzzo), Solànte (Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo), and Fregavento (Brut) are the products of this complex and heterogeneous variety of soils and microclimates, exalting the full breadth and nuances of a rich range of expression.
The vineyards have been planted in favorable positions with different exposures and altitudes. The type of vine training—involving all the care and attention of manual work—ensures a good balance between leaf area and number of grape bunches, to ensure the grapes achieve the desired quality.
Codice Oro thus stands as a genuine trademark for fine Abruzzo wines, with deep roots in the history of the territory but looking to the future, as seen in the ongoing innovation in the winery.
Growing out of the experience of generations, these wines aspire to be unique and give full voice to the great wealth of the Abruzzo grape varieties.
Fregavento is distinguished by its visual density and smooth flavor. The choice of the most suitable Montonico (100%) vineyards, planted in soils with a stone, cobble, and gravel skeleton and a scarce presence of humus, allows this wine to achieve full expression.
