Welcome to Vittorito

  • Welcome to the equestrian center “I Cavalieri dell’Antera”
  • Horseriding discovering the Abruzzo mountain
  • Arrival at Valle Reale, horseriding in the wineyards with Valle Reale staff explaining the vines training system: Pergola and Guyot

 

  • Eno-gastronomic exploration: wine tasting of 4 wines with the fresh vegetables of the Valle Reale garden
    • Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC Valle Reale 2016: Tasting of Trebbiano 2016, obtained from different wine makings within the property. This particular vintage, produced in limited quantity due to the frost blow which hit the vineyards on April 26th 2016, contains the prestigious production of the CRU Trebbiano Vi-gna di Capestrano, whose grapes, in this harvest, have been exceptionally convoyed in the production of this very wine. Small bruschetta with small Camone tomato from Valle Reale garden and olive oil produced from Azienda Agricola Valentini
    • Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo DOC Valle Reale 2016: the grapes selected for this wine, come from the vineyard located in the middle of Popoli estate, it is a very cold area during summer nights and extremely windy during the day. The soil is particularly rich of stones and extremely dry and thin. This wine aims at distinguishing itself for its cleanness and complexity of perfumes. Its freshness is noticeable, accompanied by thin but persi-stent structure. Misticanza with the seasonal vegetables of the Valle Reale botanic garden
    • Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC Valle Reale 2015: the grapes of this Montepulcinao come from both the vineyards of Popoli and Capestrano. These two areas have different climatic profiles, since the Valley of Ofena and in particular Capestrano is quite warm during the summer period, when compared to the area of Popoli. Whereas the Capestrano area produces grapes that generate more structured wines, Popoli is renown for the complexity of perfumes. This is the youngest Montepulciano of Valle Reale, with an unique personality, which can be obtained only in a mountain terroir. Grilled zucchini with olive oil made by Azienda Agricola Valentini, red garlic from Sulmona and apple vinegar
    • Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Vigneto di Popoli 2010: the Montepulciano obtained from the selection of the most ancient vineyard of the winery, an 87 year old vine, which produces still today some of the best grapes of the house, even if in just a few bunches. After this vintage it will be discontinued, so its fruits will not be available at least for the next 15 years. Eggplant parmigiana home made by Sandra
