Wine Makers

Terrana Montepulciano D'Abruzzo. by Elena & Alessandro Nicodemi

Fattoria Bruno Nicodemi, run by the brother and sister team of Elena and Alessandro Nicodemi, is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Teramo in Abruzzo. The winery was founded in 1970 and run by the sibling duo since 2000 and since then, has been a rising star on the Abruzzo wine scene.

 

The close proximity to the Adriatic coast to the East with the Apennine mountains to the West, make for an exceptional micro-climate, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly with a high level of concentration which adds to wines’ aroma and full flavour. All grapes are grown organically, harvested by hand and pressed gently with the most modern of technology. The altitude is 300m and the vines are on severe slopes facing south – south east. The elevage of the wine is carried out in French oak.

 

When I met Elena Nicodemi, I was immediately struck by her boundless enthusiasm and passion for her wines, her land and the family heritage. Both she and her brother are on a relentless quest for quality, which is naturally evident in the wines they produce.

"A terrific find, this is a splendidly food-friendly red wine, bottled unfiltered, robust and juicy with round tannins and plenty of fruit. My pasta partner this weekend." Tom Doorley, The Irish Daily Mail

Smooth,Silky & Flavoursome , 05/09/2013
By Wine Doctor
Love this! A really enjoyable red that doesn't over stretch my budget. Just short of full-bodied with a smooth and silky feel. Juicy red fruit flavours with a hint of smoke/earth provide lots of depth of flavour.
