Azienda Chiusa Grande / Abruzzo
The vineyards of Chiusa Grande lie slightly north of Pescara and are spread over 5 different plots with different soils, different microclimate and altitude above sea level of the Adriatic Sea. About 11 hectares are grouped directly around the modern designed wine cellar. Approximately 200 m above sea level. The soil here is loamy to clayey, heavy and rich in nutrients. Ideal conditions for Chardonnay, Malvasia and Cabernet - of course, here at Nocciano the native Montepulciano grape must not be missed. The highest elevations are at a good 350 m above sea level. NN and produce intense tasting grapes with fresh acidity. In total, the team of Franco d'Eusenio manages almost 70 hectares. Franco's claim can be called holistic, always in search of the all-embracing balance. Since he assumes that there is no objectively perceptible sensory experience, but that it is always a conglomeration of various influences, he has defined his own concept. So you try on Chiusa Grande, the wine tasting as a multi-sensorial experience to celebrate. Franco assumes that every tasting experience is unique. A chance encounter of environmental influences, cosmos, music, colors and the environment in which the tasting takes place. On Chiusa Grande, the wines are tasted in colorful rooms, furnished with fine furniture and in front of wide windows that open up the vast view of the vineyards and reveal the highest peaks of Abruzzo on the horizon.
Chardonnay frizzante, PetNat, so the last residual sugar with the yeast in the
Bottle fermented. The yeast remains in the almost completely durchgegorenen product.
Classic Chardonnay flavors, honey, banana, exotic touch but something
wilder and more aromatic.
Fits antipasti and toasting!
Without additional sulfur! Natural wine!
Floral-looking Montepulciano with an exciting texture. Less "easy-drink"
as complex, cherry-fruity, spicy. Still accessible.
Goes well with dark meat, tomato sauce, cheese
The wine is made from the ancient, indigenous grape variety Pecorino
multilayered, rather floral notes, prominent minerality and moist soil and
Sage-like aromas. A high on the diversity of varieties!
Good with light meals, vegetables, fish, chicken, tofu
Sweeter, slightly almond and marzipan-scented Montepulciano
with fine tannins and cherry fruit. Italy or Abruzzo pure.
Goes well with grilled, spicy sauces, tomatoes, cheese
complex & fresh
Main grape Montepulciano, at least 85%, rather tart-spicy than floral and berry, fine bitter notes in the refreshing appearance, a hint of sour cherry and raspberry, clearly on the cool side, lots of mouthfeel.
complex & fresh
Floral looking Montepulciano with just the right texture to add a little
more robust than the boring "easy-drink" Montepulcianos.
Cherry-like and multi-layered.
Goes well with tomato sauces, grilled meats, oven vegetables
complex & fresh
Made from the ancient, autochthonous grape variety Pecorino, the wine offers
multi-layered, rather floral notes, clear minerality and moist earth and
Sage reminding aromas. Hooray for the variety!
Goes well with antipasti, fish, poultry, young cheese
Interesting Montepulciano from the Abruzzo. Not so shallow and
unambitious as usual, but with hints of black olives, tar
and liquorice, at the same time the cherry flavor is always present. Delicious!
Goes well with dark meat, game, oven vegetables, cheese
