Cantina Tollo / Altopiano is located in the hills of Abruzzo, just a few miles inland from Pescara on Italy’s East Coast facing the Adriatic Sea. The vineyards encompass over 7000 acres (some organically- farmed) extending across many different topographies and micro-climates. With both alpine and maritime influences, as well as the naturally sunny climate, the region has strong diurnal temperature variations, creating the perfect conditions for high-quality grapes. The winery enjoys an international reputation and has won numerous awards over the years, including European Cooperative of the Year. Winemaker Ricardo Brighina follows a naturally-inspired winemaking style of minimal intervention and manipulation, resulting in pure, fresh, fruit-driven and authentic wines based primarily on indigenous Abruzzese varietals.

The winemaking doesn’t use any oak, to preserve freshness and fruit. The wine features fresh aromas of ripe pears, with bright and juicy citrus fruits dominating the palate. Perfect as an aperitif, great with snacks, salads and light fish dishes.

Food pairing: an aperitif wine or with seafood and subtle chicken dishes
