Wine Hunter: ed.2018-2019 “diploma D’eccellenza”

The origin of the grape variety seems to be common to the other black berry types of the south, all clearly deriving from Greece. Over the centuries, the appreciation of the Carthaginian leader Hannibal remained, which kept Rome in check for many years, reinvigorating men and horses with the wine produced in the territory of the Aprutzi.
For more than two centuries the dispute over the paternity of the name Montepulciano has been going on, contended between the people of Abruzzo and the wine growers of Montepulciano (SI). The confusion was due to the similarity of some ampelographic characteristics, and the ability to produce similar wines, even if the Montepulciano “primutico” (first-ripe or even premature) turned out to be Prugnolo Gentile, clone of the Sangiovese Grosso, when instead the Abruzzi grape was late compared to the Tuscan one, it gave decidedly more structured wines, long-lived and full of perfumes and colour.
The confusion was created in the Baronia di Carapelle, de’Medici estate in Abruzzo, in which the first viticultural and oenological techniques evolved from Tuscany to Abruzzo were imported. The starting point of Montepulciano currently cultivated in Abruzzo, after the advent of Phylloxera (philloxera vastatrix), was the area of Torre de Passeri, in the opening of the Peligna Valley towards the Adriatic. There are reports of production and marketing of Montepulciano wine since 1821 in the Pescara valley (presumably in the area of Tocco da Casauria – Bolognano where the Guelfi family resided). This statement is documented by a very rare manuscript document owned by the architect Tommaso Camplone of Pescara. From several archives it also appears that some clones that escaped the devastation of the late 1800s were found in Marsica, in vineyards at heights where Phylloxera does not survive. From the 2003 vintage DOCG has been granted to the subzone of the hills of Teramo.

Curiosity: Mastrobono … for the oak, it is symbol of a new friendship, a newfound and other confirmed, of traditions, of newfound affections and love for the territory … the homage to Mastro Melchiorre Bono, a stonemason from Abruzzo, a minor artist, little known and like many others fundamental in the enrichment of the territory … perhaps forgotten

Font: Bank Gothic LightFont created in 1930 by Morris Fuller Benton for the ATF (American Type Founders), it resembles the wall engravings of the late 19th century. The font is defined as an “exploration of geometric shapes” with a neo-grotesque flavour (trend in vogue at the time, then merged under the aegis of surrealism). The font has been widely used in cinema for flyers and posters: Matrix (complete series), The Day After Tomorrow, 24, Hancock.
Clean lines and simplicity of colours and compositional structure as signs of the desire not to add frills and alterations that disturb attention. The intrinsic quality is the focal point of the visual merchandising of this product: the product can boast a careful selection of raw materials, careful processing and maximum respect for its innate characteristics, and such a balance between the favour of nature and the expert’s dedication is not appropriate to add too much.
The font draws inspiration from the wall engravings of the late 19th century, creating an emotional connection with the stone of which the Abruzzo villages are made and which was sculpted by Mastro Bono and his colleagues throughout all periods.

MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO COLLINE TERAMANE DOCG – PRIMAMADRE

Heading title icon

Denomination: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo colline teramane Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita Riserva.
Grape variety: Montepulciano 100 %.
Altitude: 210 m above the sea level
Soils: medium texture
Vineyard: row, simple guyot training system
Harvest: handpicked, last decade of October, subject to the selection of the grapes in the vineyard.
Vinification: After destemming and crushing, the crushed grapes are transported in vitrified concrete tanks. Fermentation is carried out in contact with the skins at a temperature of 30°C, not beyond, to facilitate extraction. During the fermentation and after, for about ten days, the mass which favours the liquid (must/wine) and solid (skins) contact is moved. This expands and defines the structure of the finished wine, which intensifies with the aging first in stainless steel for a few months, then in large French oak barrels for about 8 – 12 months with subsequent aging in bottle for about 12 months.
Tasting notes: deep red colour, persistent aromas of underbrush, balanced and pleasant. Important body.
Food & wine: you can combine it with greasy dishes such as roast, grilled meat and game.
In particular, we suggest you to pair it with this typical dish: mazzarelle teramane.
First vintage of production: 2006.
The label: from the earliest times, the oak (la quercia) was considered a sacred and oracular tree. Its cult dates back to the prehistory of Roman, Greek and Celtic civilizations. This was the preferred tree by the gods and men, so much that preserving a chip of this wood was thought to preserve from misfortunes. This belief goes back to our recent past, when oak leaves were picked in Abruzzo on which lightning had fallen to entrust them to the poor recruits leaving for the war. It was thought that thanks to this talisman, the soldiers could not be hit by bullets and this based on the belief that where the lightning fell once it will never fall again.

Montepulciano grape variety is originally from Peligna Valley.
This news confirmed by a writing by the historian Michele Troia dating back to the 18th century, therefore, much earlier than when the Tuscan origins of the grape boasted. in this area it has undergone selections and has easily adapted to environmental variations following its spread to neighbouring territories and most of the Abruzzo region. The name of this wine has no connection with the Nobile di Montepulciano wine and the homonymy is therefore purely casual. The latter, in fact, originates from the city in which it is produced, while that of the Abruzzi region from the grape variety that characterizes its blend.
Curiosity: La quercia (The oak), Antica Madre, Primamadre

It is a red traditionally vinified, it was fermented for the first 10 days in contact with the skins at a temperature not more than 28°C. The first year it matures in stainless steel tanks and after that it is aged for 6/8 months in big oak barrels. Other 6 months of aging in bottle make it ready for drinking.

Lettering: Font: Charlemagne Std-Bold –
Font created in 1989 by Carol Twombly. The basic forms are modelled along the lines of Roman engravings of the late imperial era. It is distinguished by sharp and net graces, very similar to the rectangular capital letters written by the scribes in the 9th century. Still Charlemagne is a font typically used for the title, brought for the large size that emphasize its classic elegance. The name “prima madre” (first mother) is the ancient name of the oak, which the Greeks believed to be mother before all trees. The name of this brand presupposes a strong character, suitable for titles and large sizes, which highlights the ideological role and meaning of the tree that gives the company its name. The formality evoked by the name is echoed by the formal roots of the font as well as the chromatic choice and the clean composition of the label.

Lettering: Font: Classica Gallic Light –
The font, created in 2001 by designer Thierry Puyfoulhoux, was chosen for its cleanliness and similarity with the font used by the previous owner of the company. The heart of the matter was to be able to create a label that did not deviate too much from the standard one that previously dressed the image of the company “La Quercia” to facilitate us in the difficult phase of the transfer of ownership, but at the same time we wanted the label was more ours, fresher and simplified. In this regard, we simplified the design, eliminating the light and shade and the backgrounds, and we made the script cleaner, we wanted it to be similar to the others, clean and geometric, but to reveal its history, as a sign of respect for our origins and our traditions.

Wine Hunter: ed.2018-2019 “diploma D’eccellenza”

The origin of the grape variety seems to be common to the other black berry types of the south, all clearly deriving from Greece. Over the centuries, the appreciation of the Carthaginian leader Hannibal remained, which kept Rome in check for many years, reinvigorating men and horses with the wine produced in the territory of the Aprutzi.
For more than two centuries the dispute over the paternity of the name Montepulciano has been going on, contended between the people of Abruzzo and the wine growers of Montepulciano (SI). The confusion was due to the similarity of some ampelographic characteristics, and the ability to produce similar wines, even if the Montepulciano “primutico” (first-ripe or even premature) turned out to be Prugnolo Gentile, clone of the Sangiovese Grosso, when instead the Abruzzi grape was late compared to the Tuscan one, it gave decidedly more structured wines, long-lived and full of perfumes and colour.
The confusion was created in the Baronia di Carapelle, de’Medici estate in Abruzzo, in which the first viticultural and oenological techniques evolved from Tuscany to Abruzzo were imported. The starting point of Montepulciano currently cultivated in Abruzzo, after the advent of Phylloxera (philloxera vastatrix), was the area of Torre de Passeri, in the opening of the Peligna Valley towards the Adriatic. There are reports of production and marketing of Montepulciano wine since 1821 in the Pescara valley (presumably in the area of Tocco da Casauria – Bolognano where the Guelfi family resided). This statement is documented by a very rare manuscript document owned by the architect Tommaso Camplone of Pescara. From several archives it also appears that some clones that escaped the devastation of the late 1800s were found in Marsica, in vineyards at heights where Phylloxera does not survive. From the 2003 vintage DOCG has been granted to the subzone of the hills of Teramo.

Curiosity: Mastrobono … for the oak, it is symbol of a new friendship, a newfound and other confirmed, of traditions, of newfound affections and love for the territory … the homage to Mastro Melchiorre Bono, a stonemason from Abruzzo, a minor artist, little known and like many others fundamental in the enrichment of the territory … perhaps forgotten

Font: Bank Gothic LightFont created in 1930 by Morris Fuller Benton for the ATF (American Type Founders), it resembles the wall engravings of the late 19th century. The font is defined as an “exploration of geometric shapes” with a neo-grotesque flavour (trend in vogue at the time, then merged under the aegis of surrealism). The font has been widely used in cinema for flyers and posters: Matrix (complete series), The Day After Tomorrow, 24, Hancock.
Clean lines and simplicity of colours and compositional structure as signs of the desire not to add frills and alterations that disturb attention. The intrinsic quality is the focal point of the visual merchandising of this product: the product can boast a careful selection of raw materials, careful processing and maximum respect for its innate characteristics, and such a balance between the favour of nature and the expert’s dedication is not appropriate to add too much.
The font draws inspiration from the wall engravings of the late 19th century, creating an emotional connection with the stone of which the Abruzzo villages are made and which was sculpted by Mastro Bono and his colleagues throughout all periods.

MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO COLLINE TERAMANE DOCG – PRIMAMADRE

Heading title icon

Denomination: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo colline teramane Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita Riserva.
Grape variety: Montepulciano 100 %.
Altitude: 210 m above the sea level
Soils: medium texture
Vineyard: row, simple guyot training system
Harvest: handpicked, last decade of October, subject to the selection of the grapes in the vineyard.
Vinification: After destemming and crushing, the crushed grapes are transported in vitrified concrete tanks. Fermentation is carried out in contact with the skins at a temperature of 30°C, not beyond, to facilitate extraction. During the fermentation and after, for about ten days, the mass which favours the liquid (must/wine) and solid (skins) contact is moved. This expands and defines the structure of the finished wine, which intensifies with the aging first in stainless steel for a few months, then in large French oak barrels for about 8 – 12 months with subsequent aging in bottle for about 12 months.
Tasting notes: deep red colour, persistent aromas of underbrush, balanced and pleasant. Important body.
Food & wine: you can combine it with greasy dishes such as roast, grilled meat and game.
In particular, we suggest you to pair it with this typical dish: mazzarelle teramane.
First vintage of production: 2006.
The label: from the earliest times, the oak (la quercia) was considered a sacred and oracular tree. Its cult dates back to the prehistory of Roman, Greek and Celtic civilizations. This was the preferred tree by the gods and men, so much that preserving a chip of this wood was thought to preserve from misfortunes. This belief goes back to our recent past, when oak leaves were picked in Abruzzo on which lightning had fallen to entrust them to the poor recruits leaving for the war. It was thought that thanks to this talisman, the soldiers could not be hit by bullets and this based on the belief that where the lightning fell once it will never fall again.

Montepulciano grape variety is originally from Peligna Valley.
This news confirmed by a writing by the historian Michele Troia dating back to the 18th century, therefore, much earlier than when the Tuscan origins of the grape boasted. in this area it has undergone selections and has easily adapted to environmental variations following its spread to neighbouring territories and most of the Abruzzo region. The name of this wine has no connection with the Nobile di Montepulciano wine and the homonymy is therefore purely casual. The latter, in fact, originates from the city in which it is produced, while that of the Abruzzi region from the grape variety that characterizes its blend.

It is a red traditionally vinified, it was fermented for the first 10 days in contact with the skins at a temperature not more than 28°C. The first year it matures in stainless steel tanks and after that it is aged for 6/8 months in big oak barrels. Other 6 months of aging in bottle make it ready for drinking.

Lettering: Font: Charlemagne Std-Bold –
Font created in 1989 by Carol Twombly. The basic forms are modelled along the lines of Roman engravings of the late imperial era. It is distinguished by sharp and net graces, very similar to the rectangular capital letters written by the scribes in the 9th century. Still Charlemagne is a font typically used for the title, brought for the large size that emphasize its classic elegance. The name “prima madre” (first mother) is the ancient name of the oak, which the Greeks believed to be mother before all trees. The name of this brand presupposes a strong character, suitable for titles and large sizes, which highlights the ideological role and meaning of the tree that gives the company its name. The formality evoked by the name is echoed by the formal roots of the font as well as the chromatic choice and the clean composition of the label.

Wine Hunter: ed.2018-2019 “diploma D’eccellenza”

The origin of the grape variety seems to be common to the other black berry types of the south, all clearly deriving from Greece. Over the centuries, the appreciation of the Carthaginian leader Hannibal remained, which kept Rome in check for many years, reinvigorating men and horses with the wine produced in the territory of the Aprutzi.
For more than two centuries the dispute over the paternity of the name Montepulciano has been going on, contended between the people of Abruzzo and the wine growers of Montepulciano (SI). The confusion was due to the similarity of some ampelographic characteristics, and the ability to produce similar wines, even if the Montepulciano “primutico” (first-ripe or even premature) turned out to be Prugnolo Gentile, clone of the Sangiovese Grosso, when instead the Abruzzi grape was late compared to the Tuscan one, it gave decidedly more structured wines, long-lived and full of perfumes and colour.
The confusion was created in the Baronia di Carapelle, de’Medici estate in Abruzzo, in which the first viticultural and oenological techniques evolved from Tuscany to Abruzzo were imported. The starting point of Montepulciano currently cultivated in Abruzzo, after the advent of Phylloxera (philloxera vastatrix), was the area of Torre de Passeri, in the opening of the Peligna Valley towards the Adriatic. There are reports of production and marketing of Montepulciano wine since 1821 in the Pescara valley (presumably in the area of Tocco da Casauria – Bolognano where the Guelfi family resided). This statement is documented by a very rare manuscript document owned by the architect Tommaso Camplone of Pescara. From several archives it also appears that some clones that escaped the devastation of the late 1800s were found in Marsica, in vineyards at heights where Phylloxera does not survive. From the 2003 vintage DOCG has been granted to the subzone of the hills of Teramo.

Curiosity: Mastrobono … for the oak, it is symbol of a new friendship, a newfound and other confirmed, of traditions, of newfound affections and love for the territory … the homage to Mastro Melchiorre Bono, a stonemason from Abruzzo, a minor artist, little known and like many others fundamental in the enrichment of the territory … perhaps forgotten

Font: Bank Gothic LightFont created in 1930 by Morris Fuller Benton for the ATF (American Type Founders), it resembles the wall engravings of the late 19th century. The font is defined as an “exploration of geometric shapes” with a neo-grotesque flavour (trend in vogue at the time, then merged under the aegis of surrealism). The font has been widely used in cinema for flyers and posters: Matrix (complete series), The Day After Tomorrow, 24, Hancock.
Clean lines and simplicity of colours and compositional structure as signs of the desire not to add frills and alterations that disturb attention. The intrinsic quality is the focal point of the visual merchandising of this product: the product can boast a careful selection of raw materials, careful processing and maximum respect for its innate characteristics, and such a balance between the favour of nature and the expert’s dedication is not appropriate to add too much.
The font draws inspiration from the wall engravings of the late 19th century, creating an emotional connection with the stone of which the Abruzzo villages are made and which was sculpted by Mastro Bono and his colleagues throughout all periods.

MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO COLLINE TERAMANE DOCG – PRIMAMADRE

Heading title icon

Denomination: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo colline teramane Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita Riserva.
Grape variety: Montepulciano 100 %.
Altitude: 210 m above the sea level
Soils: medium texture
Vineyard: row, simple guyot training system
Harvest: handpicked, last decade of October, subject to the selection of the grapes in the vineyard.
Vinification: After destemming and crushing, the crushed grapes are transported in vitrified concrete tanks. Fermentation is carried out in contact with the skins at a temperature of 30°C, not beyond, to facilitate extraction. During the fermentation and after, for about ten days, the mass which favours the liquid (must/wine) and solid (skins) contact is moved. This expands and defines the structure of the finished wine, which intensifies with the aging first in stainless steel for a few months, then in large French oak barrels for about 8 – 12 months with subsequent aging in bottle for about 12 months.
Tasting notes: deep red colour, persistent aromas of underbrush, balanced and pleasant. Important body.
Food & wine: you can combine it with greasy dishes such as roast, grilled meat and game.
In particular, we suggest you to pair it with this typical dish: mazzarelle teramane.
First vintage of production: 2006.
The label: from the earliest times, the oak (la quercia) was considered a sacred and oracular tree. Its cult dates back to the prehistory of Roman, Greek and Celtic civilizations. This was the preferred tree by the gods and men, so much that preserving a chip of this wood was thought to preserve from misfortunes. This belief goes back to our recent past, when oak leaves were picked in Abruzzo on which lightning had fallen to entrust them to the poor recruits leaving for the war. It was thought that thanks to this talisman, the soldiers could not be hit by bullets and this based on the belief that where the lightning fell once it will never fall again.

Montepulciano grape variety is originally from Peligna Valley.
This news confirmed by a writing by the historian Michele Troia dating back to the 18th century, therefore, much earlier than when the Tuscan origins of the grape boasted. in this area it has undergone selections and has easily adapted to environmental variations following its spread to neighbouring territories and most of the Abruzzo region. The name of this wine has no connection with the Nobile di Montepulciano wine and the homonymy is therefore purely casual. The latter, in fact, originates from the city in which it is produced, while that of the Abruzzi region from the grape variety that characterizes its blend.
Curiosity: La quercia (The oak), Antica Madre, Primamadre

It is a red traditionally vinified, it was fermented for the first 10 days in contact with the skins at a temperature not more than 28°C. The first year it matures in stainless steel tanks and after that it is aged for 6/8 months in big oak barrels. Other 6 months of aging in bottle make it ready for drinking.

Lettering: Font: Charlemagne Std-Bold –
Font created in 1989 by Carol Twombly. The basic forms are modelled along the lines of Roman engravings of the late imperial era. It is distinguished by sharp and net graces, very similar to the rectangular capital letters written by the scribes in the 9th century. Still Charlemagne is a font typically used for the title, brought for the large size that emphasize its classic elegance. The name “prima madre” (first mother) is the ancient name of the oak, which the Greeks believed to be mother before all trees. The name of this brand presupposes a strong character, suitable for titles and large sizes, which highlights the ideological role and meaning of the tree that gives the company its name. The formality evoked by the name is echoed by the formal roots of the font as well as the chromatic choice and the clean composition of the label.

The heart of the matter was to be able to create a label that did not deviate too much from the standard one that previously dressed the image of the company “La Quercia” to facilitate us in the difficult phase of the transfer of ownership, but at the same time we wanted the label was more ours, fresher and simplified. In this regard, we simplified the design, eliminating the light and shade and the backgrounds, and we made the script cleaner, we wanted it to be similar to the others, clean and geometric, but to reveal its history, as a sign of respect for our origins and our traditions.
