Tommaso Olivastri is based in the small hilltop town of San Vito Chietino in Abruzzo. Just two km from the Adriatic Sea and sheltered from the west by the Majella Mountains, this is exciting terroir in which to cultivate grapes such as Montepulciano and the white Pecorino, Passerina and Cococciola.
Barone Cornacchia produces a wide range of highly acclaimed wines from the classic varieties and appellations of Abruzzo in central Italy. Apart from interesting expressions of Pecorino and Passerina, the estate’s aged Montepulciano is well worth seeking out.
Feudo Antico is truly a project to watch in the world of sustainable Italian wines. This small, quality focussed estate grows a number of varieties local to Abruzzo, the best of which produce premium wines from the Tullum DOCG area.
