The vines are grown in the IGT Terre degli Osci, in Molise, Southern Central Italy. Terre degli Osci, translates as 'the land of the Oscans', which refers to an ancient tribe who once inhabited this area of Italy. Located at altitudes of 80 to 150 metres above sea level, the vineyard covers five hectares of alluvial, medium textured, mineral-rich soils. The vines were planted in 2000 at a density of 4,200 vines per hectare and are cordon trained and spur pruned. The climate is Mediterranean, with warm, dry summers and mild winters. The vineyard is heavily influenced by its proximity to the Adriatic Sea; the coastal winds breeze through the vines, aerating the canopy and keeping the vines healthy and provide the vineyard with gentle humidity, cooling the vines throughout the hot, dry summers. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably and is in the process of Equalitas certification. Harvesting takes place between late-August and mid-September, when the fruit has reached optimal ripeness.

The grape clusters were carefully selected by hand, then the grapes were destemmed, crushed and gently pressed. Different portions of the must were selected, followed by static clarification. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at temperature controlled conditions of 16°C lasting for approximately two weeks. Ageing took place ‘sur lie’- on the fine lees- with weekly bâtonnage or stirring to impart texture and complexity. The wine was bottled in the March following the harvest.

Tenimenti Grieco

This project is the result of the dynamic partnership of Antonio Grieco and Emanuela Cecca, who following their common passion for wine, established Tenimenti Grieco. Alongside passionate, energetic and skilled winemaker Maria Concetta Raimondo, this vibrant, young and innovative winery takes full advantage of the terroir’s outstanding potential for top-quality wine production. The stunning vineyards and state-of-the-art cellar are set in the Portocannone hills at an altitude of 150 metres, overlooking the coastline and across the Adriatic Sea to the Tremiti Islands. These are coastal wines, with their own unique brackish identity, they are nourished by iodine-laden sea breezes, and are the quintessential expression of a land suspended between sky and sea.
