Natural splendour abounds in Abruzzo, a region that stretches out from the mountains down to the sea, with as much as a third of its territory dedicated to nature reserves. This patrimony is protected tenaciously by the Abruzzi with their abiding vocation for vine-growing which has persisted down the ages. The majority of the hilly terrain used to grow grapes is made up of an average sandy-clay mix with a density which varies according to the gradient of incline and the direction faced. The gentle breeze from the Adriatic helps create a favourably mild climate over the hills, bringing the right amount of rain and high levels of sunshine. The Cantina Tollo makes the full range of local varietals. Vines are worked with low intervention and a minimum of treatments. The wines are clean, crisp, straight forward and easy.
