Since the winery was founded in 1930 it has become one of the best producers in the region perfectly balancing tradition and innovation with quality and value. The estate comprises 60 hectares of well located vineyards under the watchful eye of oenologist Dott. Vittorio Festa. The low yields, rigorous grape selection, up-to-date vinification techniques and refined ageing of their red wines in oak barrels ensures a growing reputation for top-class wines. The Bove style showcases elegant, fragrant white wines and well-textured, mellow reds delivering good typicity from the native Montepulciano grape - a vine of undeniable distinction that can make wines of irresistible character with a capacity to age and supple, smooth wines eminently drinkable when young.
The vines are trained on the traditional overhead trellis system called Pergola Abruzzese and are grown in clay and limestone soils.
A cold maceration took place for six to eight hours, followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for four months in tank, prior to release.
A bright, cherry red rosé with appealing aromas of wild strawberry. On the palate it is fresh and well-structured with good acidity supporting soft redcurrant and cherry fruit flavours that linger in the mouth.
Delicious on its own or served with fish, white meats and cold cuts.
