De oorsprong

'The fact that Abruzzo wines still ubdergo vinification in the region is mainly due to this Ofena winery, now on its fourth generartion of winegrowers, where the Cataldi Madonna family cultivate their vineyards on a little upland surrounded by mountains. Winegrowing is a challenge in an area subject to strong day and night temperature variantions of as much as 30 degrees Celcius in summer. Hence the lively aromas typical of these extraordinary wines, and the vinification process aiming to preserve the: from the famous Pecorino to the spirited Montepulciano vineyard selections. A worthy performance from a winery confirming its place among Abruzzo's leading estates. The Malandrino 2012 is a sensational Montepulciano, the result of native yeasts, concrete vats and no oak. The uncomplicated Pecorino Giulia is a sharp, food-friendly white.' Gambero Rosso 2015
