The grape harvest is a pivotal moment for any winery, and for Terre di Masciulli, an Abruzzo-based winery in Villa Magna, it is no exception.
Here, the Montepulciano DOC grape harvest is more than just a farming activity; it is a celebration of tradition and passion that is reflected in our wines.
The Montepulciano DOC harvest, which usually takes place between September and October, is the most anticipated time of the year for Terre di Masciulli. The vines, kissed by the sun and mitigated by the sea breeze, produce clusters of Montepulciano grapes, the most emblematic wine variety of Abruzzo. These clusters ripen slowly, developing complexity of flavor and unique character.
Terre di Masciulli's experienced farmers follow a traditional hand-harvesting practice. This method respects the integrity of the grapes, ensuring that only the healthiest and ripest bunches are selected for vinification.
Once harvested, the grapes are carefully transported to the winery, where the winemaking process begins. Terre di Masciulli follows traditional methods and winemaking innovations to create high-quality Montepulciano DOC wines. Each stage, from fermentation to aging, is a tribute to Abruzzo's winemaking tradition.
Montepulciano Doc is one of the most representative wines of Abruzzo. It is a versatile wine that can be consumed young or aged. When you lift a glass of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC produced by Terre di Masciulli, remember that you are tasting not only a wine, but also a piece of Abruzzo tradition and passion.
