Making Techniques Developed during the years amazing root apparatus. The grape production diminishes year after year due to the age of the plants. From the 2004 vintage, San Calisto has always been appreciated by the critics and the public, constantly reaching the top 20 of the best red Italian wines. Thanks to high acidity levels, guaranteed every year by the wide temperature ranges of the area, San Calisto is a Montepulciano which achieves the maximum organoleptic expression after several years of maturation in the bottle.

Robert Parker 93 Points 'The top of the line 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto flows across the palate with layers of blue and black fruit. Mineral notes appear later, adding balance and proportion as the wine builds towards its explosive elegant finish. The San Calisto spent 18 months in new French oak, all of which has been absorbed with no issues whatsoever.'
