(MONTEPRADONE – ASCOLI PICENO) The De Angelis family manages this winery in the Rosso Piceno denomination. The wines produced mainly come from indigenous vineyards, the most prized of all is Montepulciano Marche Rosso IGT, Lukont.
Il Conte Villa Prandone’s History and Philosophy
Thinking of Ascoli Piceno comes to mind the hypothesis of the canon Alessio Simmaco Mazzocchi which attributes the derivation of the name of the city to the Hebrew word Escol (escol bortus), translatable as a bunch of grapes. From this interpretation it could be deduced that the area has always been rich and above all praised for the presence of vine plants.
In this area we find the Conte Villa Prandone , which for over three generations has been taking care of its vineyards, mainly native vines. The company is located in the Tronto Valley , in the south of the Marche on the border with Abruzzo , in the immediate hinterland of San Benedetto del Tronto , just 5 km from the Adriatic Sea , on the splendid hills of Monteprandone . Thanks to the favorable climate and the fragrant coolness of the Adriatic Sea, many grape varieties are grown: Montepulciano , Sangiovese, Merlot, Passerina, Pecorino, Trebbiano which give life to the wines of the line“THE COUNT VILLA PRANDONE” .
