The Story

PEMO Montepulciano has a rich red colour, with a cherryish nose. A deeply characterful wine, it is really soft and velvety, with red berry fruits, and a smooth, gentle finish.

Grapes: 100% Montepulciano
Vineyard area: The grapes for PEMO Montepulciano are grown exclusively on hillside slopes, at an altitude of at least 250 meters above the sea level.

Harvest: Grapes are hand-picked around the beginning of October

Vinification: The grapes are carefully destemmed and softly crushed, the wine is fermented for about 8-10 days at 24-25 °C. The yield is about 100 hl/ha. Frequent remontages are carried out for optimum color extraction, and the pips are removed from the fermenters.
After fermentation is completed we keep the skins in contact with the wine for about 5-7 days. Once the wine is racked, malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. The wine stays on the fine lees for at least 150 days before racked and filtered.

Inside Information

PEMO tells a  story of Abruzzo; two distinctive native wines whose characteristics and origins are symbolised by original drawings on the labels.

The name PEMO is a fusion of two historic, indigenous grape varieties: PE as in PECORINO and MO for MONTEPULCIANO, which have been grown in Abruzzo since 200 A.D.

PECORINO and MONTEPULCIANO embody the rugged Abruzzo region, where the mountains dramatically meet the sea . This connection is expressed in the form of fox for MONTEPULCIANO (Hills, forest) and a whale for PECORINO (the sea).

The fox and the whale tell the story of this unique area: a typical Abruzzo scene is pictured – a vine is growing up a hillside topped with a tower, with the more unusual and eye-catching element of a whale and a fox clinging onto the steep slope.

The whale brings to mind links to the sea; the transparency of the water represents the clarity of the PECORINO, incredibly fresh and the perfect accompaniments to fish and seafood.

The Red color of the fox’s coat embodies the intense red colour of MONTEPULCIANO and the intensity of this deep, rich and rugged red.
