Tenuta Terraviva is a family-owned winery in the hills of Tortoreto in the Province of Teramo, northern Abruzzo and only 1 kilometre from the Adriatic Sea.

Parcels of land were purchased in the area in the 1970s by Federica’s Grandfather, Mario, and have been farmed organically since 1998. Fruit was originally sold to other wineries but they started making their own wine in 2008, focussing on single vineyard and single varietal wines from indigenous varieties. The estate covers 25ha of which 18ha are currently in production, with vineyards planted on clay and sandy soils between 150 and 250m altitude. Old plantings of Trebbiano, Passerina and Montepulciano are planted to the old-fashioned pergola system.

Modern winemaking without additions is the theme here. Indigenous yeasts are used throughout, with all wines spending time in stainless steel tank, on their lees, before bottling.

The Montepulciano comes from the estate’s young vines (18 years old and counting) and sees 12 months in tank and 3 months in bottle.  Fruit-forward, vibrant and crunchy.
