Tenuta Agricola Pesolillo was founded in 1961 when grandfather Domenico, a humble, hard-working man who was a farmer from generations, understood the viticultural potential of the wonderful “Colle Rotondo” area, just at the outskirts of the ancient city of Chieti,
hidden on the gentle hills, by the Adriatic seaside.
With great dedication and passion, he initiated the vineyards of Montepulciano and then of Pecorino, which, as of today, account for a total of 12 hectares, along with these, he couldn’t resist adding a good number of olive groves near them.
The location of the estate (200 m above sea level) and the territory on which the vineyards extend, guarantees the vines a microclimate made of strong thermal changes, decent sea breeze, and an optimal sun exposure that favors an excellent ripening of the grapes, a natural health of the bunches and the formation of aromas and scents that are an
expression of environmental context, naturally suited to the cultivation of the vine.
We can define ourselves “BIOLOGICAL BY VOCATION” from the very early days, due to these natural territorial peculiarities.
In 2015, the family decided to start the official process of recognition of the natural territorial peculiarity of the Pesolillo Estate that was subsequently certified as Organic by ICEA (Institute of Environmental Ethical Certification).
