VINEYARD

Located in various municipalities of Abruzzo Region, the vineyards from which we produce Jorio are distinguished by the special attention which is dedicated to pruning.

The aim is to limit fruit production and create ideal conditions for air to circulate around the productive layer of the vine. These are essential conditions for ensuring ideal ripening of the Montepulciano grape.
