Fosso Corno - Orsus project
100% Montepulciano grapes that come exclusively from the small Cru zone called "Colline Teramane". Only the Montepulciano from this Cru zone can bear the designation DOCG.
Special production process: When the grapes are fully ripe, pruning is carried out and the grapes remain on the vine for about 20 days so that the berries dry out easily. This procedure results in a concentration of sugar and flavors. The wines from the Orsus project are warm, round and velvety. They also have a full body and great personality.
Fosso Corno Estate is in Roseto Degli Abruzzi in the province of Teramo and covers 30 hectares on a single hill. From one side of the hill you can admire the deep blue of the Adriatic Sea, whereas towards the west you can enjoy a view of the imposing mountains of the Gran Sasso.
This generous land is particularly endowed with a fortunate natural position and is renowned for its typical wines. The growth of interest in Montepulciano wine produced in the region of Abruzzo, led their family to purchase this estate in 2001. In 2002 all the existing vineyards were uprooted and substituted with new vineyards. Between January and February 2003, 9 hectares of Montepulciano were planted (R7 clone and AP-MP1 clone) with espalier and with a density of 4500 stumps per hectare. Another 11 hectares were planted between 2004 and January 2005. But the work is not over yet. The engagement is still going on in making a product of the highest quality. This means a serious work of experimental agronomy and vineyard care.
Fosso Corno Estate must make itself known as a great interpreter of the most typical wine of this region, the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. This is Fosso Cornos aim for the near future.
