Details

Controvento is a small winery from Abruzzo founded in 1978. The vineyard spans a total of 5 hectares and is situated inside the protected area of “Fosso delle Farfalle” in the town of Rocca San Giovanni, just off the Adriatic Sea in Abruzzo. The vines are between 21 and 23 years old. Grape varietals are mostly Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo and Trebbiano, but Fiano, Passerina, Malvasia and Cabernet all exsist in smaller quanitties. Controvento is certified organic. We use absolutely no chemicals on our vines and in our cellar no addition or manipulation of any kind is done during the vinification process. The wines never have any So2, are never clarified, never fined and are allowed to spontaneouly ferment. - Raw Wine website

Just for Fun

Rocca San Giovanni is a town located in the Abruzzo region of Italy, and it is known for its rich culinary traditions. One classic dish from the area is called "sagne e fagioli," which is a hearty pasta dish made with homemade noodles and a rich tomato-based sauce that includes cannellini beans, garlic, and herbs. Another traditional dish from the region is "arrosticini," which are skewers of tender lamb or mutton that are seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and grilled over an open flame until crispy and charred. Just do both for dinner with wine!
