Tenute Barone di Valforte

in the region:

The Sorricchio family has owned the baronial fief of Valforte since the 13th Century. The entire vineyard lies within the “Colline Teramane” DOCG area (first vintage to be allowed the new DOCG was in 2003). The Tenute Barone di Valforte vineyards cover 42 hectares in various communes in the Teramo hills. The investment these gentleman farmers have made in their winery is truly impressive. After growing and selling their grapes for years, they took no shortcuts when they decided to bottle the products of their vineyards. Montepulciano is grown on south-facing mountain vineyards, and the white varietals - Trebbiano, Percorino, Passerina - are grown on the cooler, north-facing slopes (which helps explain why the whites from this warm area show so much freshness and finesse).
