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, which was born exactly as a Cerasuolo, is originally from Peligna Valley.
This news confirmed by a writing of 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.

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.
