(NOCCIANO – PESCARA) Chiusa Grande is a winery that produces wines in the Nocciano area. Famous for its Karma Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Perla Nera, Vinosophia and many others.
Chiusa Grande’s History and Philosophy
The Chiusa Grande organic farm is located in Nocciano in the province of Pescara in Abruzzo, in a hilly area between the valleys of the Pescara and Nora rivers, in a panoramic position, with land particularly suited to viticulture. The company is organic and is among the most certified in Europe.
The history of this company began in 1994 when, the current owner, Franco D’Eusanio , doctor of Agricultural Sciences and consultant for years of wineries, decided to start his business, in a region that over time has shown great development in the field. Relentless supporter of the ” bio philosophy “, not by chance called ” Vinosofo ” and ” Bio-innovator“, Franco decided to switch to organic agriculture for solid conviction and for a coherent lifestyle, where respect for the environment, natural times and biodiversity were an ethical choice, a framework on which to base wine production , without being slaves to profit, taking care of the excellence of a product, the psychophysical well-being of those who drink and a deontology for those who produce, respecting nature.
The 70 hectares of vineyards planted on strongly clayey and medium clayey soils, enjoy a microclimate, an exposure and an altitude suitable for good care of the grapes and an equally adequate vinification, strictly under the principles established by the company’s organic choice . The cultivated vines are the native Montepulciano, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo and Pecorino and the international Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and are divided into the estates of the company: Nocciano, Cugnoli, Civitaquana, Loreto Aprutino and Cascanditella, with soils that present different peculiarities, in which each vine can find a habitat suitable for its characteristics.
The wines of Chiusa Grande
The line offered by Chiusa Grande is collected in a rich catalog, divided into conceptual collections: “Wines of identity”, refer to the classic Abruzzo wines that reflect the territory: Montepulciano, Trebbiano and Pecorino. While “Vini Vinosophia” refers to uncompromising autochthonous wines and reflect the Abruzzo soul: Cerasuolo, Montepulciano, Pecorino, Trebbiano, Pecorino and Passerina. While “Wines without Sulfites”: Natura Bianco and Natura Rosso, are genuine and authentic wines. It continues with “I Vini Dell’eros”, which includes the top of the range: the Black Pearl and the White Pearl.
But to the flagship Perla Nera wine, another diamond point is added as regards the production technique, the white and red In Petra, that is the ancestral “Wines of the Stone”, for which a necessary clarification must be made. It is a wine fermented in limestone vats, for both red and white, born from a research in collaboration with the Faculty of Oenology of the University of Teramo, which has taken up a production technique dating back to 1400 years ago. The stone basins used were taken from a site located near the company – in the locality of Pietranico – now a UNESCO World Heritage Site for these millstones. And finally the catalog also presents spumantivery interesting as the Classic Method D’Eus, in white and rosé versions.
