PRODUCER

La Valentina
Spoltore, Abruzzo, Italy

Fattoria La Valentina was founded in 1990 in Spoltore, a village nestled amongst the Pescara hills on the central Adriatic coast. Abruzzo is two-thirds mountains and hills and one-third coastal terrain, prime conditions for grape growing. Producers here have historically made industrial bulk wines. In recent years several artisan producers have arrived on the scene and are turning out top quality wines from Abruzzo’s indigenous Montepulciano and Trebbiano varietals. La Valentina is at the helm of this group.

Following initial and extensive viticultural research, Di Properzio began a quest for quality and promoting Abruzzese DOCs. Two major developments in 1998 supported this goal: initiating the Binomio project with Stefano Inama and hiring Luca D’Attoma as winemaker.

While taking a very traditional approach to farming and employing a variety of organic and biodynamic farming methods, Di Properzio also uses the most current technology to ensure that the fruit’s integrity is maintained from grape to glass.

The wines are made from low yields, see long maceration times on the skins lasting several weeks, and are bottled unfiltered, resulting in very pure expressions of Montepulciano and these unique terroirs... La Valentina is an excellent source for bold wines loaded with personality. - Antonio Galloni
