Badia alle Corti Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is made from grapes grown in the hilly section of Abruzzo on vineyards sloping down towards the Adriatic Sea. This friendly, somewhat rustic wine has nice soft fruit and provides easy drinking pleasure.
Badia Alle Corti is produced by the Castellani family who has been making wines since 1903. The family’s business has grown over the decades, but their extensive history and experience crafting quality wines continues to emphasize sustainable practices. The estate soils are fertilized naturally using Sovescio (green manuring). Vines are re-planted using Massal Selection from exceptional old vines (instead of nursery clones). Vineyards are diversified with multiple varieties and other crops – no monoculture. Even wild hares are bred in and live around the vines. In the cellar, with the exception of sulfites, no chemicals, additives, GMOs, grain, soy or dairy are used. This wine is vegan friendly and gluten free.
