As far back as 1890 my great-grandfather decided that in the green Castilenti our wine estate would be born.
The choice of land was not a casual one - Certainly what struck him was not only the extra-ordinary beauty of the mountains, the bloom of the uncontaminated nature, but also how he himself told us as children of the particularly sweet air and the intense scent of the land that made him realise immediately that from vines planted here a great wine would be born.
It was from then that nature controlled the existence of my family, and each year from the warm anticipation of spring to the cool days of September we wait with enthusiasm and trepidation for the beginning of the harvest. It is at this moment that all is set aside and our grapes, land and wine become of absolute importance.
The starting point for the production of a fine wine is the use of materials of the highest quality. Here at San Lorenzo we know the care taken in the cultivation of the land by the hands of knowledgeable men who have collaborated with us for years.
We utilise the most technologically advanced systems on our estate to press the grapes, ferment the juice and to control the temperature at each phase.It is for this reason that our wines are of optimum quality.
The path towards the production of a high quality wine is a difficult one to follow especially where the investment required to further improve the quality is sometimes very high. However the persistence, patience and dedication of our family allows us to achieve notable results.
We put great faith in Abruzzesi wines and have a great deal of love that emerge from our estate.
