Abruzzo is the region of Italy where we live, the land of Aligi, the
land of our wines. Aligi was a shepherd and the main character
in “The Daughter of Iorio”, the celebrated work by Gabriele
D’Annunzio, the renowned poet from Abruzzo. And this was not
by chance: the deepest roots of this region are burrowed in
shepherding, grown over time through the centuries old
bridleways of the transhumance. Between the highest peaks of
the Apennine Mountains – Gran Sasso and Maiella – and the
Adriatic Sea, the bridleways unwind through the hills and valleys,
traipsing around the vineyards. One of the most typical wines of
Abruzzo is dedicated to them, Pecorino. Our grapes ripen in one
of these valleys, Val di Sangro.
The vineyards of Terra D’Aligi are in the heart of Abruzzo, near
Atessa in the region of Val de Sangro. At 690 feet ASL, the
climate is Mediterranean, well ventilated, with significant
temperature fluctuations. Well-draining soils consist of clay and
Primary grapes cultivated here are Montepulciano, Pecorino,
Trebbiano, Cococciola and Passerina.
Wine is created by the land. Our job is to understand, cultivate
and exalt the gifts offered by the land of Abruzzo, respecting its
Our technique of selective cultivation is based on in-depth
knowledge of the terriors. Processing and ageing based on
centuries of experience, never betrayed by technology.
Our commitment to our land, our most precious heritage.
Defending, caring for and protecting it are our primary priorities.
A passion for things done right, perfectionism that never settles
for the easiest result, even with a dose of nit-picking: these have
always been the distinctive traits of our wine-making family, as
well as our wines.
