It all began in the 1960s, when every small peasant reality in the medieval village of Villamagna in the province of Chieti, in Abruzzo, produced the grapes from which it obtained an unmistakable pitch black wine, necessary to satisfy only the needs of the family.
In more recent times, a group of enthusiasts, armed with knowledge and love for their land, began studies and research that led to the identification, in a small area in the municipalities of Villamagna, Vacri and Bucchianico, one of the most suitable areas for production of great red wines. This is how this prestigious denomination of controlled origin was born, aimed at delimiting and protecting this territory and its wines that smell of an ancient art, linked to the value of the land, and to a wine "as it was once made" .

With the aim of rediscovering the typical scents and aromas of our land, we use the traditional winemaking method; the long maceration of the skins allows a perfect extraction of color and tannins.
