Italy - Fattoria Nicodemi Abruzzo


Wines from the new Colline Teramane District

The Fattoria Nicodemi winery is located in the new Colline Teramane District of the Abruzzo region, a hilly part of Central Italy that borders the Adriatic Sea. Despite its small vineyard plantings, Abruzzo produces over 40 million cases of wine each year - more than twice that of Tuscany. The great varietal here is the famed Montepulciano, Italy’s fifth largest planted grape. It should not be confused with Tuscan Montepulcianos, which are red wines made from Sangiovese and other grapes near the town of Montepulciano. Montepulciano d’Abruzzos are typically deeper colored wines with pepper and spice notes, nuances of earth and blackberries, and often described as “rustic.”

The Fattoria Nicodemi winery was founded more than a half century ago by Bruno Nicodemi, who took over his father Carlo’s vineyards. Since 2000, the winery has been run by the brother/sister team of Alessandro and Elena Nicodemi, third generation operators. This brother/sister team also fills the role of winemakers at their family’s impressive winery. They have specialized in native Italian varietals and are assisted in their
winemaking duties by Frederico Curtaz and Paola Caciorgna. Curtaz worked for fifteen years with Angelo Gaja, one of Italy’s greatest winemakers, and Caciorgna is Tuscan and has made a name for himself with his own wines that are crafted from grapes grown on the side of volcanic Mt. Etna. Such winemaking expertise insures near perfection for the wines of Fattoria Nicodemi.
