Italian wine


Situated in the mountainous central Italian region of Abruzzo along the Adriatic Sea. Abruzzo’s rugged terrain, 65% of which is mountainous, help to isolate the region from the winemaking influence of the ancient Romans and Etruscans in Tuscany but the area has had a long history of wine production.

The most notable wine of the region is Montepulciano d’Abruzzo produced with the Montepulciano grape that is distinct from the Sangiovese grape behind the Tuscan wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Together with Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is one of the most widely exported DOC wine from Italy.

Some of the most highly rated wine from Abruzzo comes from the hillside vineyards in the northern provinces of Pescara and Teramo. In the completely mountainous province of L’Aquila in the west.

Our Italian Wines

Exceptional Quality


The wines from the estate tell a beautiful story of passion, tradition and quality. Villa Castorani lies in an ideal setting: in the municipality of Alanno, in the province of Pescara, between the Majella national park and the nearby Adriatic sea. Sitting at 350 meters above sea level, it enjoys ideal sun exposure and night winds, and consequently, great thermal range. All of it gives the wines their unique and precious character.

Today, like in the past, everything rotates around the beautiful Villa Castorani. The estate now sits on 75 acres of luxuriant and uncontaminated countryside.

The grapes cultivated here are mostly whites, Malvasia, Cococciola, Pecorino and Passerina. There is also an area where new experimental varietals are tested. The average age of the vines are over 30 years. All the area is cultivated following strict organic guidelines: neither chemical pesticides nor fertilizers are used.
