Tenuta Ulisse, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is one of Abruzzo’s premier winemaking estate. It has dived into the enormous potential of Abruzzo’s unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, Trebbiano D’Abruzzo, Pecorino, Passerina and Cococciola.

Great structure, complex, elegant, well balanced with a long aftertaste. Opulent fruit. Ideal for roasts, game, strongly flavoured dishes and mature cheese. Meditation wine.
Part of the grapes have been rigorously harvested after a slight over-ripening of the plant, 15/20 days maceration and ageing: 9/12 months in fine French and American barriques
