Azienda Agricola Angelucci
Located at the east entrance of the famous ‘Gole dei tre monti’ (“Three Mounts Gorges”) you will find the Angelucci family. The vineyards of the Angelucci Argricultural Company extends along the inside of both the Castiglione a Casauria and Tocco da Casauria lands. In the vineyards, there are a small amount of Montepulciano and Pecorino grapes which are cultivated - two ancient vine varieties of Abruzzo.
For the Angelucci family, the harvest is a custom. The harvest begins every year in mid-August with the daily inspection of the grapes in the various vineyards. The inspection is followed by the squishing of the pedicel which leads to the wilting on the plants, usually during the last the last ten days during the month of August. Then to conclude the harvest there is a delicate hand-picking of the grapes during the first week of September, after 10-15 days of wilting. The grapes are packed into baskets.
