Abbia Nòva

In a fascinating foothill scenery Daniele and Pierluca Proietti sublimate Piglio's archaic and earthy vocation for the vine. On the gentle and green hills of Frosinone, between 380 and 550 meters above sea level, Cesanese and Passerina, traditional vines with deep local roots, align at the foot of the Ernici mountains. The viticultural activity of the Proietti cousins ​​has over twenty years of history, but it is only since 2013 that they began to offer themselves on the market with their own labels. A natural viticulture, the fascination of marquee farming, delicate vinification without enological intervention: the wines of the five Proietti crus (for just over six total hectares), among which the San Giovanni - vineyard from which it all began - stands out are true expression of the Lazio countryside and of the most authentic it can give. Between old strains and new plants, only copper and sulfur. Green manure is used for fertilization, while the soils are grassed and lightly weeded once a year. The company is formally in organic conversion, and also makes use of some biodynamic methods. In the cool cellar at 820 meters above sea level, the vinifications are little interventionist, with spontaneous fermentations entrusted to indigenous yeasts, and controlled by the sole management of temperatures. The refinement, up to 24 months, allows not to clarify or filter, before being massaged in 54-liter demijohns. Then bottling. Very low quantities of sulphites used.
