"Francesco Valentini produces outstanding wines expressing all the potential, and even more, of Trebbiano variety.”

Soil Specificity

The soils in Abruzzo ranges from Mesozoic and Tertiary limestone in the Apennine peaks, to Pliocene and Pleistocene marine sediments as we get closer to the Adriatic sea. Dolomite, limestone, and marl characterise best the variety of soils in the region. The majority of vineyards are found in the hilly areas in the Chieti province. Sloping land, altitude, shallow and rocky soils are key elements of this great terroir.

A Passionate Lineage

Francesco Valentini took over in 2006 the family business established in the mid 50s by his dad, Edoardo Valentini. Valentini is an almost mythological name among the Italian wine lovers. Despite using only Trebbiano and Montepulciano – two grapes usually confined to the production of easy and uncomplicated wines – and very “basic”, non-interventionist wine making techniques, his wines are stuff of legend. The Trebbiano is possibly the single best Italian dry white wine. Fermented in concrete casks and aged in 25hl Slavonian oak casks, the wine then is aged in bottle and released only when considered ready.
