Description

The first Antrum was produced in 2003.

When we started renovating the cellar in Miglianico dating back to 1853. It is dedicated to the underground caves in our cellar which is one of the oldest cellars in Abruzzo. It tells the history and the character of the Ciavolich family. It is an elegant wine with a rustic soil. The grapes come from the historical vineyards in Loreto Aprutino dating back to the 60s.The grapes are picked, crushed and destemmed. The must then goes into stainless steel vats and after the rack-and-return process carried out on the first day, pumpover takes place over the following days. Temperature controlled fermentation then takes place. The wine, at this point, is transferred into barriques from 2007 where it ages for about 4 years.
