You are first struck by the beautiful rich ruby red. It is firm and opens with hints of mediterranean spices though a pleasant, earthy, mineral tone can already be noted.

La Valentina Farm was born on the hills overlooking Spoltore, which is near Pescara in Central Italy, in 1990. The owners, Sabatino, Roberto e Andrea Di Properzio, have been running the company since putting their development project into action in 1994.
After the first few years spent studying the Santa Teresa vineyard, their continuous efforts to keep improving quality and to achieve recognition for the high-quality D.O.C. wines from the Abruzzo region have become the principal goals in the company philosophy. We have learned to understand our land more fully by respecting and tending it. Each year we have had successively healthier wines of more and more authentic quality. Moved by our conviction that improvement comes only through respect for natural equilibriums, year on year we have rigorously applied our philosophy that does not permit the unrestrained use of technology and chemicals.
