BackgroundBorn in the Abruzzo, Nevio represents the ancient winemaking traditions of a region where vines date back to the Roman Empire. Nestled between the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennines Mountains to the west, the areas of Pescara offer the perfect climate for highlighting all the exceptional characteristics of the Montepulciano dAbruzzo grape. When crafting Nevio, only the best fruit is selected and vinified following traditional techniques forgotten by modern technology. Nevio undergoes a long maceration on the skins to extract all the richness of the Montepulciano grape. The resulting wine is intense and deep in color.
VinificationHand-picked grapes from old vines (at least 30 years) are vinified employing traditional methods, including a long maceration of the skins at controlled temperature. The wine is refined in stainless steel tanks followed by a stay in large casks.
