ABOUT THE PRODUCER: GRAN SASSO
Gran Sasso is the name of of a project between friends Valentino Sciotti and Camillo De Iuliis, which involves wineries and wine brands in 3 different regions.
The company’s home is in the Abruzzo region of central Italy, where the Gran Sasso d’Italia (Great Stone of Italy) forms the centerpiece of the Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga. Within the park are found the highest mountains in continental Italy south of the Alps.
In Abruzzo, the Gran Sasso range of wines is vinified at a winery facility called Rodea. The enormous former cantina sociale in the coastal town of Roseto degli Abruzzi was purchased for a relative song and completely renovated in 2004, with spanking new, state of the art equipment. Here the wines from local grapes are vinified by an extremely talented winemaking team which includes Fellipo Baccalaro and the young Marco Flacco.
