The vineyards of Tenute Barone di Valforte have belonged to the Sorrrichio family since the 14th century; today, their estate encompasses 300 ha- 52 of which are dedicated to vineyards, in the Abruzzo region. Their focus has been cultivating grapes indigenous to the region- Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Trebbiano, Pecorino, and Passerina. With this, the winery has also made sustainable practices a focal point, implementing processes in accordance with what they refer to as an ‘organic agricultural system.’
Barone di Valforte is currently managed by brothers Francesco, Guido, and Guido’s daughter Annamaria. Nestled in between Gran Sasso and the Mariella mountains, these three have taken it upon themselves to keep up the rich tradition of their land and family’s heritage.
Barone di Valforte’s Pecorino is a stand out amongst lesser known Italian white varieties with notes of white flowers and gravel-after-it-rains on the nose. Just like their Montepulciano, the slightly heavier mouthfeel and texture is the star again; lively acidity is perfectly balanced with stone fruit and complex minerals. Perfect for any grilled seafood dish when the BBQ comes out of hibernation.
