Mastrobono …. for the oak (la quercia), 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
Wine obtained from a blend of autochthonal white berried varieties with a prevalence of Trebbiano.
It is aged for two years in big oak barrels and then it ages in bottle.
The vinification with long maceration of the must with the skin allows to obtain a product with a characteristic straw yellow colour and an intense and fruity aroma with slight scents of bitter almond, dry and round flavour.

Font: Bank Gothic Light –
Font 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.

Pecorino is an autochthonous variety from central Italy and in particular from Marche, Umbria and upper Abruzzo regions. It is a variety that prefers fairly high hilly sites and that matures early, around the first ten days of September. The reason for the denomination equal to the well-known cheese is uncertain but it is probably due to the seasonal movements of the shepherds who, on their return from the mountain areas in September, brought their flocks to graze on the vineyards where the fruit had already been collected. The low production yields of this variety pruned winemakers to abandon its cultivation in favour of other more profitable ones

Font: Avant Garde Condensed Medium Bold, Avant Garde Condensed Bold
The font chosen is a slightly drier variant of a font designed in the mid-sixties by Herb Lubalin, called as the magazine for which it was initially designed, which has experienced immediate and lasting success over time. We have chosen the font for this brand with the criterion of addressing a younger audience (not necessarily of age) and of harmonizing with the name, which recalls a characteristic Abruzzo curse and at the same time the dancing and ardent princess of traditional festivals (we have an authentic adoration for our roots …). To all this, we have added a label that explains the taste sensations that Pecorino, Passerina and Montonico evoke on the palate through colours and writings.

The “montonico” which takes its name of uncertain origin from the grape variety of the same name, is a typical product of the area of the municipalities of Bisenti and part of the municipality of Cermignano and dates back at least to the Roman times from which some districts still retain its name. From the Onciario book of the 1615, it is noted that the cultivation of “montonico” was very flourishing. At the beginning of the 1700s, oak barrels with a capacity of 100 must bodies were built and, in those times, a large barrel built without support circles aroused much admiration. In the land register of 1760 the cultivation of the vine appears much more extensive and in the invasion of 1798-99, the French found the product so fresh, harmonious and fragrant to call it “le petit champagne” and request its supplies for the various detachments in Abruzzo.
Curiosità
we decided to attribute the name Santapupa to recall the ancient tradition of village festivals, where the celebrations were used to conclude with the pupa dance and because it is a typical popular expression that can be easily memorized.

There has been evidence of the existence of the Trebbiano grape in Abruzzo since the 16th century when Andrea Bacci, in his work “De Naturali Vinorum Historia …”, indicates the presence in Fucino and in the Peligna area of a wine made from Trebulanum grapes. , is a medium-late budding vine as well as the maturation which indicatively goes from the 10th of September to early October.

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. For this reason, the font used is a middle ground between the clean style of our other brands and the more historical one that welcomed us when we took over the company.

Of French origin, Chardonnay inherited its name from a small town in Maconnais, in Burgundy. From here it would have spread throughout northern France and in Champagne where, from the Middle Ages until the early twentieth century, it was called “Fromentau” or “Formentau” for the colour of its bunches similar to that of the ears of grain and ripe wheat. The grape variety was later classified as Pinot-Chardonnay (due to its similarity to Pinot blanc, its close relative) and this denomination remained in use until the early 1980s. It has only been shortened in Chardonnay for a few years.
Precious variety, with the vocation to “travel”, has become an international grape variety and is currently found in all five continents. In Italy it first spread in the Tre Venezie and in Lombardy, but in recent years new plants have multiplied in every corner of the peninsula.
Vigorous vine, it adapts to all types of soil and different climates. An interesting aspect of Chardonnay is the different aromatic heritage that characterizes some clones. There are, in fact, different aromatic nuances according to the environments where it is grown. Naturally in the areas with the greatest sparkling wine vocation, these aromas are more delicate, while in environments which are warmer and suitable for the production of still wines the aromatic character is more pronounced until reaching a Muscat-like flavour.
