The forefather of this vibrant vineyard would be brimming with paternal pride to see the result of his creation at the end of the 19th century. Then a young Giovanni Bosco began cultivating vines around the city of Pescara in the south east region of Abruzzo. With its warm Mediterranean climate and proximity to the Adriatic Sea the land was, and is still, rich and fertile for grapevines and over time Giovanni produced a wonderful red wine with an intense bouquet and spiciness that was named Montepulciano d’Abruzzo – today the Montepulciano grape is the second most-planted in Italy. In 1897 the Bosco winery or vineyard was born and the wine garnered fame all over the world. Over time, the Bosco winery expanded and their wines have won several awards in recent decades, something that would have made Giovanni smile proudly and raise a glass to the new generation of Boscos.
Our selection from their Donna Bosco range all have beautifully illustrated labels and include:
white – a Chardonnay and a Pecorino
rosé – a Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo
red –a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva
