Today, Margiotta Wine Company is one of the most dynamic wine businesses in the Abruzzis, cultivating nearly 10 hectares of vineyards and producing winning wines on every square foot.
Italy does well with this careful blend of Sangiovese and other grapes. Aging begins at the end of December in oak barrels and lasts until November of the following year. The result is an excellent, robust, flavorful ruby red wine.
