Among sea, mountains and thermal breezes

THE WIDE BIODIVERSITY OF OUR TERRITORY, EXTENDED FROM THE ADRIATIC TO THE MAJELLA, IS AN EXTREMELY FAVORABLE FACTOR FOR THE PRODUCTION OF SPARKLING WINES.

Our climate is temperate, with a unique feature favoring the correct growth of vineyards: thermal breezes. During the day, the Adriatic sea absorbs heat, which then releases in the atmosphere at night. The earth temperature lowers and attracts masses of hot air, thus generating thermal breezes on a more or less constant basis, given the short distance among sea and mountains (in just 35 kms, you get to an altitude of 3.000 mt). This phenomenon reaches its peak in case of late snowfalls on the Majella mountains, intensifying the thermoregulation effect on cultivations.





Also remarkable is the diversity of soils: from sand-sandstone on the Adriatic coast, to pebbly-limestone in the foothills, across clayey hills with sparse areas rich in organic substances.

“… if you think about it, the Gran Sasso and the Majella mountains are our basilicas, facing each other in a complementary, very successful dialogue.”

(Ennio Flaiano, letter to Pasquale Scarpitti)
