Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red in color, the nose exhibits notable intensity of ripe fruit and spice. On the palate, it is complex, structured, with marvellous texture. A long, pure, concentrated, mellow finish that speaks of well balanced èlevage.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Ursonia is deeply impressive. Black fruit, smoke, tar and licorice come to life in this vivid, powerful Montepulciano. All of the elements build towards the massive, textured finish. Ideally the Ursonia needs another year or two in bottle, but it is already pretty impressive that the estate can afford to wait this long before releasing their top wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Il Feuduccio is one of those properties one never hears much about, yet the wines rarely fail to impress.

Il Feuduccio
Some six hours from Milan is one of the most beautiful, untouched landscapes you could imagine: green valleys and snow-capped mountains, with the Adriatic Sea for horizon. Here is the estate of Abruzzi-born Gaetano Lamaletto. Forty years ago and freshly married to Maria, he left his native land, staking everything he had on a South American ceramics venture that was to bear golden fruits. It would have been only natural for the Lamalettos to enjoy their hard-earned success and give Abruzzi no more than the fleeting tribute of nostalgia.

Instead, Gaetano chose to craft a range of all-Abruzzi wines in celebration of his homeland. In 1996, he secured 67 acres of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (now expanded to 99 acres) and one of Italy’s greatest oenologists: Franco Bernabei. The entire estate, now totalling 129 acres that comprise superb olive groves, is 100% organically cultivated.

All phases of the preparatory work have been supervised not only by Bernabei and Gaetano, but by the latter’s eldest daughter, Laura, and manager Rocco Cipollone.

The sandy-clayey-silty terrain – catered to by ideal microclimate, ideal temperature range, ideal varieties, ideally trained and drained – is, in Bernabei’s words, baciato da Dio,"kissed by God". In 2004, the range was expanded to two white blends (Yare now being flanked by Il Feuduccio Bianco) and four native Montepulciano d’Abruzzos.
